With the help of the Issues Program Director Beth Fiteni from Neighborhood Network, I was able to find Holiday Park Cleaners, 1025 Fulton St, Farmingdale, NY11735 (631) 694-6954, who use Rynex, a non-carcinegenic, non-hazardous waste cleaning solution. The bonus is that their prices are similar to other dry cleaners, and the service very personable.
