Electronics Recycling Event - April 25th, 10a-4p

On April 25th, just a few days after the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, The Cobble Hill Association and PS29 PTA are hosting an electronics-recycling event with the Lower East Side Ecology Center.

Last time we collected nearly 10,000 pounds of materials from almost 200 residents. When unwanted 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 25th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Schoolyard at P.S. 29, 425 Henry Street, entrance on Baltic between Henry and Clinton

-Computers and monitors
-Printers, scanners, fax machines, copiers
-Network devices (routers, hubs, modems, etc.)
-Peripherals (keyboards, mice, cables, etc.)
-PC components (hard drives, cd-roms, circuit boards, power supplies, etc.)
-Television sets, VHS and DVD players
-Radios and stereos
-Phones of all sorts, answering machines, pagers
-PDAs and games
