Free Electronic Waste Recycling Event to be Held in Midwood

NEW YORK -

For those who consider Pesach cleaning an excuse to go through a year’s worth of trash, Councilmembers Chaim Deutsch and Kalman Yeger will be holding two events in Midwood for people to dispose of electronic waste and shred documents.

“Get a head start on your Pesach/spring cleaning and bring your old electronics and papers to be disposed of,” said Deutsch in a statement.

The event will be held inside the parking lot located at 1223 East 14th Street, between Avenue L and Locust Avenue, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 17th and Monday, March 22nd.

The truck for paper shredding was sponsored by Ace Corner Hardware and Paint Center, which is located at 2266 Nostrand Avenue.

The electronic disposal truck will be provided by the NYC Sanitation Department. Types of electronics include old computers, monitors, laptops, printers, keyboards, computer mice, and MP3 players.
