E-Waste Recycling This Month


As we mentioned last week, the city has suspended their electronics recycling events because of budget cuts. But the Council on the Environment of New York City is publicizing two collections of electronic waste in November:

Tuesday, November 10, 11am-7pm
Church of the Heavenly Rest
90th St and 5th Ave, Manhattan

Sunday, November 22, 8am-3pm
West Side of 1st Ave, between 93rd and 94th Sts, Manhattan

Bring cell phones, computers, laptops, copiers, fax machines, IPods and PDAs, modems, monitors, keyboards, mice, printers, stereo and radio equipment, telephones and telephone equipment, televisions, typewriters, speakers, digital cameras, VCRs, DVD players. All E-Waste collected will be recycled in an environmentally responsible manner in the U.S.

For more information, download this flyer from the CENYC.

Thanks for helping to spread the word! The November 10th event, sponsored by Carnegie Hill Neighbors, was a big success.

The event on Sunday, November 22, sponsored by Gracie Point Community Council and Upper Green Side, has a slightly updated location: West Side of 1st Ave, between 93rd and 94th Streets.

Please note that CENYC is not technically a sponsor of these events; we are merely providing support to these hard-working community groups to get the word out far and wide.
