On my answering machine was a message from someone saying someone else has a bunch of electronics they want to get rid of. They did not know what to do. Electronics contain heavy metals and other stuff that should be recycled rather than thrown away. That’s an interesting term. Thrown away. What is that?
I couldn’t find any info on the Town's website....here is some info they should put online.
The NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act was passed April 1, 2011. It requires manufactures and stores to take back unwanted electronics. For more details, follow this link. http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/65583.html.
You can mail your stuff to manufactures and some will give you money. You can find info for this online. The EPA has an eCyclling site as well.
You can get together with some friends and join the Funding Factory or companies like it. You can recycle together and earn money for a cause. You can take it to EH Recycling facilities, but it will cost the Town money to cart it away.
There's probably many other things you can do with your unwanted el-stuff. It might be good to get yourself some green,save the town some green and go green recycling electronics.
