The fifth of eight 2012 Household Hazardous Waste Disposal days, including the S.T.O.P. — Stop Throwing Out Pollutants, electronic waste (e-waste) and drug collection programs — for Oyster Bay Town residents is scheduled for Aug. 18.

The collection day will be held at the town Public Works Garage, 150 Miller Place, Syosset, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

For more information, call 516-677-5943.

The S.T.O.P. program is in its 27th year, and it’s the ninth year for the electronic waste collection program. Oyster Bay was the first town on Long Island to have a regularly scheduled e-waste program. The town conducted its first drug collections in 2010 and expanded the program to eight collections this year.
