Free Electronics Recycling and Textile Collection this Saturday

COMPUTER AND ELECTRONICS RECYCLING: UPPER WEST SIDE

Saturday, November 17 – 12 PM to 5 PM

Amsterdam Avenue and 110th Street (south side)

While electronic devices are safe to use in the home or office, they pose an environmental risk when improperly discarded. E-waste accounts for 40% of toxins in household garbage. Recycling helps keep it out of landfills, incinerators and the environment.

This Saturday, WeRecycle! and Upper West Side Recycling will be accepting computers and electronics that you wish to recycle. All collected computers and electronics will go to an EPA-licensed recycler.

The following items will be accepted:

  • Working & non-working computers (laptops & desktops)
  • Peripherals: monitors, printers, keyboards, mice, cables, etc.
  • TVs, stereo equipment, VCRs, DVD players, cable receivers, etc.
  • Cell and wall phones
  • Small appliances: toasters, microwaves, coffee makers, etc.
  • Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) – no long bulbs, please.
  • Flashlight-type batteries (AA, D, etc.)
  • Textiles (clothing, shoes, blankets, sheets, towels, etc.)

The following items will not be accepted:

  • Air conditioners
  • Large appliances such as refrigerators
  • Carpeting
