Recycle Your Unwanted Electronics in Carroll Gardens This Weekend

June 2nd, 2007 · No Comments

Thanks to Z. Madison for bringing this to our attention, as it had escaped us entirely: There is an E-Waste Drive going on in Carroll Gardens this weekend that has been organized by City Council Member Bill de Blasio. It’s another opportunity to dispose of unwanted computers, VCRs, cell phones and other unwanted electronic gear in an environmentally-responsible way. The drop off spot is Smith & President Street (via subway, take the F or G to Carroll Street). The hours are:

Saturday, 6/2 10AM-4PM
Sunday, 6/3 10AM-4PM
Monday, 6/4 4PM-7PM

According to the EPA, about 70 percent of heavy metals in landfills come from e-waste, so getting rid of your unwanted tech devices and toys this way is simply a good thing to do.
