e-waste event September 17th

I am a huge fan of The Lower East Side Ecology Center, they not only champion a sustainable NYC (since 1987) but they are a go-to for education and my favorite e-waste recycling day. This will be their only summer event but will have events in all five boroughs in the fall. There's still time to do something that not only helps the environment, but helps you to feel good about getting rid of all that stuff you're collecting that you no longer have room or use for:

The Ecology Center is holding an electronic waste ("e-waste") recycling event at Tekserve in Chelsea to responsibly recycle unwanted or broken electronics from New York City residents. This is one of 17 e-waste recycling events that the Ecology Center will be holding in all five boroughs in September and October.

A list of acceptable materials can be found here and we accept electronics from households and small businesses (less than 50 employees, please call ahead) as well as not-for-profits. We do not accept home appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, or air conditioners.

The electronic waste recycling program is made possible by Tekserve.


Transit: Take the F or M train to 23rd Street, walk 1 block west or take the M23 bus.

Driving: The event will be on the north side of West 23rd Street between 6th and 7th Avenues.
