Tekserve Electronics Recycling Event

When:Saturday, April 10, 2010
Time:10:00am – 4:00pm
119 W. 23rd St
New York, NY

Tekserve and The Lower East Side Ecology Center are once again sponsoring an electronic recycling drive. New York City area residents can properly recycle their eWaste free of charge on Saturday, April 10th, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The collection point will be at 119 West 23rd Street, in front of Tekserve’s retail store.

Sponsored collection events, like this one, are one of the easiest ways to properly dispose of your old gadgets in NYC. Due to funding constraints, the city’s electronics recycling events and the Build It Green drop-off program have been suspended. Our last event collected tons of old computers, printers, phones, and home electronics, which can contain hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium, and mercury.

Recyclable items include: computers, monitors, fax machines, copiers, DVD or VCR players, radios, telephones, cell phones, televisions, cameras, and stereo equipment. Unfortunately, we cannot accept home appliances, such as microwaves, stoves, refrigerators, and air conditioners. Individuals only please – they cannot accept drop-offs from businesses.

To celebrate the event, anyone bringing electronics to be recycled can register at Tekserve for a raffle to win a new MacBook ($999 value). All participants in the event will also receive a $25 discount coupon towards a new computer or current iPod (except iPod shuffle) within 30 days.
