POSTPONED - Earth Day on the Plaza

The Earth Day event and environmental fair scheduled for April 21 on the Plaza has been postponed. The lack of a state budget precludes organizers from allocating staff and financial resources to this worthwhile event.

“Every Day Is Earth Day” event may be rescheduled once a budget has been enacted.

Please note that DEC will still be collecting unused/unwanted household pharmaceuticals for proper disposal indoors on the south concourse from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on the 21st. The collection is part of DEC's "Don't Flush Your Drugs" campaign to raise awareness about the negative impacts of household drugs on water quality. All collected pharmaceuticals will be incinerated in a waste-to-energy facility. Sharps and mercury thermometers will not be collected.
