Town environmental protection director Russell K. Barnett said the number of people disposing waste at the twice-a-year events has grown since they began a few years ago. Last year, nearly 700 households deposited thousands of pounds of waste at the collections.

“Each time we’ve had it, it’s gotten bigger. It’s grown,” Barnett said.

Residents can call 631-269-6600 or 631-360-7514 for more information. The town website, smithtowninfo.com, posts information on disposing household chemicals, electronics, paint and other material.
