Subway service changes to affect 10 lines this weekend

According to The MTA, these weekend changes are necessary because of capital construction work on the MTA New York City Transit subway system. This work is part of NYC Transit’s ongoing Capital Rebuilding Program aimed at upgrading and maintaining the tracks, stations and signal systems in order to continue to provide customers with safe and reliable service. Customers who rely on these lines should allow for additional travel time.

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.
