Residents who received new electronics during the holiday season can properly dispose of their old and unwanted electronics at an e-waste recycling event in Ridgewood.
State Senator Joseph Addabbo is partnering with the Lower East Side Ecology Center, the Friends of Rosemary’s Playground and the Department of Parks and Recreation to host an e-waste recycling event for residents to get rid of old electronics later this month.
The event will take place, rain or shine, at Rosemary’s Playground, located on Fairview Avenue between Woodbine and Madison streets, on Jan. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“I truly love co-hosting these e-waste recycling events throughout the year because it gives my constituents an easy way to recycle their old or broken electronics at a central location right in their neighborhood,” Addabbo said. “With the sanitation laws seemingly always changing, it can get confusing on what can legally be thrown out with your curbside recycling. So if you got some new electronics over the holiday season and need a place to get rid of your old ones, come down to Rosemary’s Playground and take part in this great event.”
The event will be collecting working and non-working computers, monitors, printers and scanners, keyboards, mice, cables, TVs, VCRs, DVD players, phones, cellphones, PDAs and other audio/visual equipment.
