Are you aware of New York new law regarding electronic devices?

As of January 1, 2015 you could be fined  $100 for throwing out electronic devices with your regular garbage.   The recycling of electronic devices such as cellphones, televisions, computers, tablets etc is a must, according to a new law in New York State.  But

New York new law on the disposition of electronic items

what if you use your waste management recycling program?  That is not acceptable.

Who will  accept these items for disposal?

Electronic items will be accepted at major retail stores such as Staples and Best Buy.   I am sure as time goes on the list of drop off  locations will grow.

Many components in these equipment can be recycled and re-purposed.

Did you know you could also get some cash for your cellphones, since there are several companies ready to buy your older smart-phones?


Recycling of electronic devices benefit us all.

I find it irresponsible of our lawmakers to pass these kinds of ludicrous laws without providing a means by which we can easily displose of them.

I don't know about your best buy but I've been to several and most do NOT take electronics for recyclying and the ones that do, only take 1 item at a time!!!!

Good luck with that  and thanks for sharing

Our local community has a handful of annual electronic waste drop off days. They hold one at the high school twice a year and once a year at the fire station. It makes it very easy for folks to drive by and drop off their old electronics.
