Free Electronics Recycling in NYC June 16-18

This was sent to my e-mailbox a day or two ago, and I thought it was worth sharing. Do what you can to keep the earth a little better!

From Tekserve’s e-mail newsletter: During Father’s Day weekend, Tekserve has teamed up with the Lower East Side Ecology Center to offer free electronics recycling on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm and Monday from 4pm-7pm. New Yorkers will be able to recycle any of their old electronics gear – computers, monitors, printers, scanners, fax-machines, copiers, network devices, keyboards, mice, hard drives, components, TVs, VCRs, DVD players, radios, stereos, cell phones, pagers, PDAs, and telephones – at Tekserve on 23rd Street near 6th Avenue (Old iPods can be traded in for a 10% discount on a new iPod). The components in many electronics can be incredibly hazardous to the environment – contributing up to 70% of the toxins found in landfills – so it’s important that they are properly recycled.

For more details, visit or contact the Lower East Side Ecology Center at 212.477.4022 or

(I have no connection with Tekserve, but I like their store on 34th Street in Manhattan a lot, and they have a lot of good educational seminars which you can learn more about on their website. About a year ago, I attended a seminar with author Adam Engst, and I thought it was fantastic.)
