Unload your cell phones and broken laptops this weekend. The Ecology Center is holding its second to last spring electronic waste (“e-waste”) recycling event on Saturday to responsibly recycle unwanted or broken electronics from New York City residents.
They accept electronics from households and small businesses (less than 50 employees, please call ahead) as well as not-for-profits. A list of acceptable materials can be found here.
Why? Because you don’t want a small child in a developing country dismantling your old iPod.
