Sponsored Post: Join the Lower East Side Ecology Center for Free eWaste Recycling


Join the Lower East Side Ecology Center for free eWaste Recycling right in our neighborhood, and avoid a fine!

This Sunday March 29th, find the Ecology Center set up on the north side of Tompkins Square Park, on Avenue A between E9th and E10th Streets, accepting unwanted electronics for recycling and re-use. We’ll be there from 10am to 4pm, rain or shine.

Did you know that the curbside disposal of electronics is now illegal, and the city will soon begin issuing fines for noncompliance? Recycle with the Lower East Side Ecology Center for free.

Can’t make it on Sunday the 29th? No problem, we’ll be back with another event on the LES: Saturday May 30th on Chrystie Street between Stanton and Rivington, as a part of IdeasCity 2015.
