NYC Residents Can Properly Recycle Their eWaste

Tekserve and The Lower East Side Ecology Center are sponsoring an electronic recycling drive. New York City area residents can properly recycle their eWaste free of charge on Saturday and Sunday, April 26th & 27th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Monday, April 28th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The collection point will be at 119 West 23rd Street in front of Tekserve's retail store.

Last year, the event collected thousands of pounds of old computers, printers, phones and home electronics, which can contain hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium and mercury.

To celebrate the event, anyone bringing electronics to be recycled can register at Tekserve for a raffle to win a MacBook Air or one of three 16GB iPod Touches. All participants in the event will also receive a $25 discount coupon for a new computer purchased within 30 days.

Recyclable items include: computers, monitors, fax machines, copiers, DVD or VCR players, radios, telephones, cell phones, televisions, cameras and stereo equipment. Unfortunately, we cannot accept home appliances such as microwaves, stoves, refrigerators and air conditioners.
