Just a reminder that on Saturday, March 24th, the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID, Lower East Side Ecology Center and City Council Member Brad Lander will be sponsoring an electronics recycling event from 9 am - 4 pm at the corner of 5th Avenue and 4th Street.

•    TVs, VCRs, DVRs, & DVD Players
•    Digital Converter Boxes, Cable/Satellite Receivers

  1. There is a vibrant, for-profit secondary market for recent models of laptop computers, desktop computers and cell phones because these products retain significant value.

  2. Safely recycling electronics helps keep hazardous substances from harming people and our plants. It's nice to join activities like this!

  3. Any suggestions where to bring regular batteries?

    1. The Best Buy at Atlantic Terminal will accept them.
