Stop Throwing Out Pollutants




Many Long Island residents are unaware of the effects ordinary household products such as drain cleaners, batteries and pesticides can ultimately have on the public drinking water supply if disposed of improperly. Such materials can make their way into the ground where aquifers, Long Island’s sole source of drinking water, are situated deep beneath the earth’s surface.

In an effort to keep the area’s drinking water safe, Westbury Water consumers are encouraged to participate in S.T.O.P. (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants). This town-operated program is designed to ensure that toxic household materials are properly disposed in an environmentally safe manner to protect Long Island’s drinking water supply from contamination.

Town of North Hempstead residents can drop off antifreeze, solvents, disinfectants or any other household materials at the nearest S.T.O.P. location where authorities can discard of the substances in a safe and appropriate manner. By participating in this program, consumers can help protect their families and future generations to come.

For more information on this program or for the dates and times of the nearest S.T.O.P. location, please call the Town of North Hempstead’s Recycling Hotline at (516) 767-4600 or visit
