Electronics Recycling Event - April 22th, 10a-4p

With Earth Day right around the bend, the Cobble Hill Association is proud to again take part in a neighborhood electronics-recycling event. Despite the construction in the school yard, the collection will still be held at the PS29 and run by our good friends at the Lower East Side Ecology Center.

Find all those broken gadgets in the house and remind your friends that when electronics are simply thrown in the trash, dangerous wastes and metals seep into our soil and waterways. This event makes it simple to safely dispose of electronics – simply drop them off.

What: Electronics recycling
When: Sunday, April 22th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Schoolyard at P.S. 29, 425 Henry Street, entrance on Baltic between Henry and Clinton
