NYC Electronic Recycling Events Earth Month 2009 Calendar
Tis spring and again time to recycle the e-waste. Lucky are we to have the Lower East Side Ecology Center on hand to take our toxic e-crap off our hands to be properly disposed of. Rundown after the jump and don't forget to put LESEC's EcoBizNYC Sustainable Business Workshops beginning next Tuesday on your calendar.
Daddy, what happens to my e-waste once I drop it off? Well, computer equipment is loaded into trucks and transported by the contracted electronics recycling company (Sims Recycling Solutions) to their facility. At the recycling facility the equipment is evaluated and tested for reuse potential. Electronics are then de-manufactured into component parts and recycled. Certain easily reusable components such as memory chips get harvested for reuse or refurbished for resale. Learn more about what to bring here.
