Holiday E-Waste Recycling Is Going On Now

This holiday season, lots of people will be getting shiny new toys to play with: game consoles, TVs, computers, tablets, phones and smartwatches. Some people will even get new appliances like refrigerators, dishwashers and other appliances. Even though holiday shopping is down this year, rest assured that  the holidays still add up to a lot of trash and waste.

Electronic waste is a little different than old wrapping paper, though (although you should reuse or recycle that too). Starting on January 1, 2015 in NYC, it will be illegal to leave electronics on the curb as trash. And of course you can recycle your accepted electronics with the Lower East Side Ecology Center at these events going on now:
