UPDATED: Today (November 22nd) we will be hosting an Electronics Recycling Event at the 92nd Street Greenmarket on First Avenue between 93rd & 94th Streets (west side of First Avenue).
Electronic waste is a growing source of toxic materials entering our waste stream and there are many valuable metals in electronic equipment that can be recycled. By separating e-waste from normal trash, we can reduce harmful toxic chemicals from entering our eco-system and reduce the need to mine for new metals.
Please help spread the word. Please pick-up posters at the local Greenmarkets to put up in your building this weekend.
Here are the details:
DATE: Sunday, November 22, 2009
TIME: 8 a.m. to 3 PM

All e-waste collected will be recycled in an environmentally responsible manner here in the U.S.
