Ongoing Eletronics Recycling

The Cobble Hill Association has had multiple successes with its electronics recycling events held at P.S. 29 because of the collaboration with an amazing group, The Lower East Side Ecology Center. We are proud to report that they've just opened a permanent drop off location here in Brooklyn!

Their warehouse sits at 469 President St (at Nevins) in the Gowanus area and will be open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10am-5pm; on Wednesdays, noon-7pm; as well as Saturdays, 10am-4pm.

The LESEC warehouse will accept household e-waste such as computers, monitors, printers, scanners, TVs, VCR's, DVD players, phones, audio/visual equipment, video games, cell phones and PDAs. All collected materials will be responsibly recycled or reused, so please do your part in helping keep electronics out of our landfills.

To celebrate the opening, there will be a community reception with light refreshments this coming Saturday, February 4th, noon-4pm offering a chance not only to drop off e-waste but also tour the space and learn more about recycling and the LESEC.
