E-Waste Recycling, March 18
March 14, 2016
Electronics are everywhere and everything. And to keep up with the newest and the latest, we replace our electronics what feel like every other day. It begs the question: We vaguely know that there’s something bad about throwing them out, and electronics in the trash are actually illegal, but what to do with them?
Recycle! Which is not always easy.
It’s why most people have a dusty pile of electronics – computers, speakers, fax machines, batteries – under their bed or stashed in the rarely-opened supply closet. A part of you always thinks “I need to get rid of this sh**,” while the other half feel comforted by its presence. Kind of like that notebook you still have from high school or your ex’s sweatshirt. You don’t sleep in it anymore, but you also don’t toss it because you like knowing it’s there.
It’s 2016, people. Let’s clean [electronic] house.
On Friday, March 18 from 11am-4m, we’re partnering with the Lower East SideEcology Center to give you the e-waste clean-out opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Grab your old electronics, pack that pile of batteries, and do right by the City and the environment: recycle! Meet us on the southwest corner of West 14th Street and Eighth Avenue and let the LES Ecology Center take care of it for you.
In addition to recycling it in the traditional sense, they do unique things with your old stuff, too: like running a used electronics store and a prop library for TV, film, and theater productions.
Come drop off the e-stuff on March 18. Everyone is doing it.
What to drop off:
- Computers (any an all parts of them)
- Fax machines
- Computer mouse(s)
- VCRs/DVD players
- Audio/visual equipment
- Cell phones
If it has an electronic component, BRING IT!
