Recycle your used electronic equipment this fall.
The New York City Department of Sanitation is sponsoring these electronics recycling events through the assistance of the Lower East Side Ecology Center and support of Best Buy and Intel.
What is accepted?
Computers (laptop and desktop)
All makes and models are accepted and drop off is free. Events are open to NYC residents only. Each resident can bring up to five pieces of equipment. All equipment will be recycled. Cell phones will be donated to Collective Good.
The events will be held rain or shine.
Why recycle your electronics?
Computers, monitors, televisions and cell phones contain hazardous materials, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. Recycling your unwanted electronic items keeps these hazardous materials out of the waste stream and the environment.
