Meatpacking District to Co-Host E-Waste Recycling Event for Electronic Junk Disposal

E-Waste Recycling Event Details

If you’re like us, you have a collection of old phones and gadgets lying around. However, unlike textile or paper recycling, it isn’t always easy to find a place to safely deposit those old devices. In a few weeks The Meatpacking District and the Lower East Side Ecology Center are making it easier for New Yorkers to recycle their old computers, batteries, TVs and more, during their annual E-Waste Recycling event.

As a bonus, the LES Ecology Center does unique things with your old stuff, too: like running a used electronics store and a prop library for TV, film, and theater productions. Your old PC could very well end up in a movie or TV show down the road! Last year’s collection of e-waste amounted to 7,000 pounds! Check out the below acceptable items for e-waste recycling:

  • Computers (any and all parts of them)
  • Printers/scanners
  • Phones
  • TVs
  • Phones
  • Fax machines
  • Keyboards
  • Computer mouse(s)

  • Audio/visual equipment
  • Cell phones
  • PDAs
  • Speakers
