This January marks our 9th Annual "After the Holidays" Electronic Waste Recycling Events. There are 12 events throughout the 5 boroughs, making now the perfect time to responsibly get rid of that clunky e-junk that you just replaced over the holidays.
Last January we collected 100 tons of unwanted electronics, help us reach our goal of 120 tons for January 2012 by spreading the word to your neighbors, friends and family!

9th Annual "After the Holidays" Electronic Waste Recycling Events
The following events are free for households, not-for-profit organizations, and small businesses (less than 50 employees, please call ahead). A list of acceptable materials can be found here.
