New recycling laws went into effect in January of 2015 to ensure electronics were responsibly discarded. Starting April 1st however, the three month grace period is over and now a $100 penalty kicks in should you forget to recycle those old computers, TVs, phones etc ing your electronics. Check out the city's list of items which can no longer be disposed of with your regular trash and be sure to keep an eye out for E-Waste events citywide in which you can safely drop off your electronics and avoid the fines.
The next E-Waste event happening here in Cobble Hill will be April 19th at PS 29's schoolyard on Baltic street between Henry & Kane. Click here for further details.
