9th Annual "After the Holidays" E-waste Events
The Lower East Side Ecology Center is bringing its 9th Annual "After the Holidays" E-waste Event series to all five boroughs this January to help you responsibly recycle of all of your unwanted or broken gadgets. Last January we collected 100 tons of e-waste our goal for this year is 110 tons! We need your help to reach this goal - please spread the word about responsible disposal of electronics to your family, friends and neighbors!
We accept electronics from households, not-for-profit organizations, and small businesses (less than 50 employees, please call ahead). A list of acceptable materials can be found here. We do not accept home appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, or air conditioners. All events will be held rain, snow, or shine. We also have some special deals from Zipcar and our event sponsor, Tekserve. Below is a list of the remaining events in January.
