Recycle your e-waste Sunday on Avenue A

[EVG office photo from March 2018]

This Sunday, you may bring your working — and non-working! — electronics to Tompkins Square Park for a recycling event hosted by the Lower East Side Ecology Center.

The recycling action happens from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (rain or shine!) on Avenue A between Ninth Street and 10th Street.

And here is the list of items they'll accept:

• Computers (laptops & desktops, servers, mainframes)
• Monitors (CRT and flatscreen)
• Network devices (routers, hubs, modems, etc.)
• Peripherals (keyboards, mice, cables, cords, chargers, etc.)
• Tablets and e-readers
• Components (hard drives, CD-ROMs, circuit boards, power supplies, etc.)
• Printers under 100 pounds, scanners, fax-machines, etc
• TVs, VCRs, DVRs, DVD & Blu-ray Players
• Digital Converter Boxes, Cable/Satellite Receivers
• Portable music players
• Audio-visual equipment
• Video games
• Cell phones, pagers, PDAs
• Telecommunication (phones, answering machines, etc.)

There are some e-waste items that we accept, but we charge a recycling fee for:
Media such as CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, and cassette tapes
Computer battery backup systems (Uninterruptible Power Supply [UPS])

If you can't bring your unwanted electronics here, then at least leave the items in a public place where someone can photograph them for a future EVG post.

Thanks for the info. I've been waiting for an event like this for a while.


Can I bring my LinkNYC?

I've got a 10 year old flat screen TV to lug over there. Who has a spare hand truck? :-)
