E-waste

On Sunday, April 1, over 100 households took part in an event aimed at helping to rid the environment of unwanted electronic waste. The second annual “E-waste Recycling” event collected an estimated 8,000 pounds, or 4 tons of e-waste, including used computer monitors, printers, batteries and television sets.

“It was great to celebrate the one-year anniversary of our state’s electronics waste recycling law,” said Silver. “By requiring manufacturers to recycle e-waste we are preventing toxic chemicals from entering our landfills. As the number of electronic devices that people buy continues to go up, it is essential that we act in an environmentally responsible manner. Together, we can help leave our children a greener, more sustainable world.”

The speaker hosted the event in conjunction with the Lower East Ecology Center.
