Electronic Recycling Change effective August 11,2015

 For several years, the Town of Halfmoon has accepted all electronics for recycling free to our residents at the Transfer Station.  By providing this drop off service throughout the year, the Town has provided a convenient option for the collection and subsequent recycling of unwanted electronics. Due to increased costs we have no option other than to charge a fee for disposal of CRT televisions and monitors which will offset the Town’s cost of disposing of these items. The chart below details the fees. For additional information, please contact John Pingelski at the highway department at 518-664-3127 or  [email protected].
