An Important Note from Waste Management (FIWMD)

E-Waste, or electronic waste, describes end-of-life electrical goods such as computers, televisions, printers, mobile phones, etc. According to recent EPA statistics, Americans get rid of 142,000 computers and over 416,000 mobile devices every day. 40% of these items are recycled, but the rest pile up and cause environmental damage by leaking lead, cadmium, mercury and other hazardous wastes.

FIWMD passes along the $25 cost of discarding electronic waste to our customers. Extend the life of our planet by recycling your devices where you purchased them.

The Commissioners of the Fishers Island Waste Management District acknowledge and thank Ann Banks for her years of faithful service to the District. Ann’s inquisitive and open demeanor made her a valuable member of our team. Ann’s friendly personality along with her steadfast and patient leadership will be sorely missed at our meetings. We appreciated that Ann always worked toward doing the right thing instead of concentrating on being right. We value your efforts Ann; on behalf of our community, we sincerely thank you.
