Livingston's Electronics Recycling & Paper Shredding Event + Toy Collection

LIVINGSTON, NJ — Outdoor plastic toys – like Little Tikes cars and playhouses – as well as plastic dollhouses, action figures, and other items, will be collected at Livingston’s household Electronics Recycling and Paper Shredding Event. The toys, which should be “gently used,” will be redistributed to local families in need by the group Second Chance Toys.

On Sunday, June 9th, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, residents can bring these, along with their unwanted, old, or broken electronics and small appliances, to the Senior/Community Center at 204 Hillside Avenue. On-site paper document shredding will also be offered, and all services are free for Livingston residents.

TVs, cell phones, laptops, computers, monitors, printers, keyboards, copiers, VCRs, stereos, and electronic games are accepted, as well as small appliances and rechargeable batteries. Computers, TVs and other electronics cannot, by law, be disposed of in curbside trash, as they often contain hazardous metals that pollute groundwater.

Confidential papers will be placed into a secure on-site shredder that residents can watch as it destroys their documents. Residents may bring up to five boxes of papers, with metal bindings or clips removed.

Residents unable to attend the event can drop off electronic items and toys early (but NO bulbs and NO paper for shredding), at the Senior/Community Center in Craft Room 1, lower level, on Thursday, June 6th, 8:30am to 10:00pm, or Friday, June 7th, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Recycling Committee Chairman Scott Goldman said, “This event is a fun way to kick off your spring cleaning, and we’re excited to keep expanding our recycling efforts by adding the new plastic toy collection. These plastic items are difficult or impossible to recycle, so finding them new homes is a great solution.”

Toys should large enough so children cannot swallow them; if the item can fit through a toilet paper tube, it’s too small. For questions about what can be accepted, visit www.LivingstonRecycles.org or call Scott Goldman at 973-476-2476.

Crews at the event will unload all items from vehicles. Volunteers from the Livingston Recycling and Reclamation Committee and from the Livingston High School Science National Honor Society will also be on site to help out.

The event is for Livingston households only; no items from commercial or office users are accepted.

“This is the continuation of our efforts to keep Livingston green,” said Mayor Al Anthony. “I encourage residents to take advantage of this free opportunity to get rid of unwanted electronics and shred their confidential papers.”

“It’s also a great opportunity to recycle those gently used plastic toys that are often still in great condition long after your kids have outgrown them.”

“Remember,” added the Mayor, “If it has a plug, you can recycle it with electronics.”
