Electronic Waste Recycling Event

The Prospect Park Alliance and the Lower East Side Ecology Center will co-host a post-holiday electronic waste recycling event at the 3rd Street entrance to Prospect Park from 10 AM to 4 PM on Sunday, January 19.

Spread the word to friends and neighbors that the event provides the opportunity to responsibly dispose of all of their unwanted or broken electronic gadgets.

You can view a list of acceptable items here at the Center's website.

The event is a good way to get ready to comply with the recently-passed Electronics Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act, which takes effect on January 1, 2015, making it illegal for New York State residents to put electronic items out with the trash.
