E-Waste Recycling

From November 10-12, 2007, EarthCo. teamed up with the Lower East Side Ecology Center for an e-waste recycling event for Morningside Heights. Parking a big red bin on 115th and Broadway, we collected any and all forms of e-waste, a total of 7,720 pounds (nearly 4 tons!) of unwanted electronics from 201 local residents. A huge success...thanks, LESEC!

We're hoping to make this an every-semester event, so keep your eye out for more e-waste collections in Morningside Heights in the spring.

Also, the LESEC has now arranged for a permanent drop off site for e-waste at Build It Green!NYC, located at 3-27 26th Ave, Astoria, Queens. Click here for more info.

UPDATE 10/28/08: Unfortunately, LESEC does not have the necessary funding to continue holding e-waste recycling events. Thus, we are unable to offer this event right now. However, remember that you can always recycle your cell phones, batteries, and other electronics in the Lerner Hall recycling center.
