Public transportation is an ideal way to lower your carbon footprint and help the environment. For nearly three decades as one of the first organizations to offer community-based recycling and composting programs in New York City, Lower East Side Ecology Center has been at the forefront of helping and teaching New Yorkers how to further do their part. The Center’s electronic waste reuse and recycling program offers free, responsible disposal of working and non-working electronics to New York City residents, small businesses and non-profit organizations. They offer e-waste collection events seasonally in neighborhoods throughout the city and also accept equipment five days a week at their Gowanus E-waste Warehouse, where reusable and refurbished items are available for sale.
