Spring (cleaning) is here and the Lower East Side Ecology Center is helping you clear old and unwanted electronics out of your closets without trashing the environment! Drop-off your tech gear in front of the landmark courthouse on 3rd Avenue and Brook Avenue in Melrose to have it responsibly recycled.
A list of acceptable materials can be found here and we accept electronics from households, not-for-profit organizations, and small businesses (less than 50 employees, please call ahead). We do not accept home appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, or air conditioners and we also do not accept carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
We know that data security is important to, well, everyone and you can find out more about which recyclers we work with and how we handle data-containing devices in our FAQs.
All events will be held rain or shine.
We would like to thank the Nos Quedamos for being a part of this event. The e-waste recycling program is made possible by Tekserve.
Transit: Take the Bx15, Bx21 or the Bx6 to the Third Avenue and 161st Street stop. Walk a half of a block south to the event, which will be at Third Avenue and Brook Avenue in front of the old courthouse.
Driving: The event will be on Third Avenue at Brook Avenue.
