Another chance to recycle those old electronics you might have gathering dust in your apartment is coming up this Saturday, December 7 from 10am to 4pm, at an e-waste recycling event sponsored by the the Lower East Side Ecology and Tekserve, and hosted by PS 321.
You can drop off both working and non-working electronics in front of the school on 7th Avenue between 1st and 2nd Streets, and LES Ecology will take them off your hands for either refurbishing or recycling.
Here’s what they’ll accept:
• Computers (laptops & desktops, servers, mainframes)
• Printers, scanners, fax-machines, copiers
• 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.)
• TVs, VCRs, DVRs, and DVD players
• Digital converter boxes, cable/satellite receivers
• Portable music players
• Audio-visual equipment
• Cellphones, pagers, PDAs
• Telecommunication (phones, answering machines, etc.)
They’ll also take batteries, but ask that alkaline and rechargeable batteries are separated, with the terminals of the rechargeable batteries taped up. They cannot accept home appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, or air conditioners.
Anyone who drops-off electronic equipment will be entered in Tekserve’s raffle, where you can win a MacBook Air. Zipcar members will receive a coupon for $15 of free driving credit for coming to the event.
