Recycle Your Electronics in Manhattan September 9th through NYCWasteLess

(Copied and pasted from my environmental blog: The Fatty Cares) 

Recycle Your Electronics

If not donating unwanted electronics for reuse, drop off your unwanted or broken electronics for recycling. Only the following items will be accepted:

  • electr-icons-orange-200 computers & laptops
  • monitors
  • printers & scanners (desktop only) 
  • keyboards & mice
  • TVs
  • VCRs & DVD players
  • cell phones

Other kinds of electronics won’t be accepted. Only NYC residents (no businesses allowed*) may drop off material (limit five pieces per vehicle). The first 100 people to drop off electronics will receive a $5 Best Buy gift card.

All dropped off items will be recycled through contracted vendors and all data on hard drives will be destroyed; no scavenging will be permitted and no tax-deduction receipts will be given out.

While safe to use, electronics contain hazardous materials, such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. Recycling your unwanted electronic equipment keeps these hazardous materials out of the waste stream and the environment.
