What do I do with….? Guide to Reuse/Recycling

We’re working on creating a page dedicated to listing locations near Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown where you can drop off everything from clothing to expired medication. We would love to hear any suggestions that you have for other places where things can be donated, reused, recycled, or safely disposed of.

Please email us at sleepy.hollow.eac@gmail.com with ideas for what to add to the draft below or click here to join our mailing list and receive future updates!
