According to the NYC Department of Sanitation, certain electronics (such as computers and televisions) are now banned from disposal.
Following are some recycling options for working & non-working electronics:
- DSNY’s e-cycleNYC program.
Apartment buildings with more than 10 units can enroll for this free and convenient pickup service.
- Retail drop-off programs.
For example, drop off electronics (no purchase required) at any Goodwill, Salvation Army, Best Buy, Staples (no TVs), or the Gowanus E-Waste Warehouse.
- Electronics recycling events.
Bring to events run by organizations such as Lower East Side Ecology Center, or DSNY’sSAFE Disposal Events.
- Donate or sell working electronics.
Visit the NYC Stuff Exchange to find place to buy, sell, or donate electronics.
Please see the DSNY website for additional information.
