For Immediate Release


Lower East Side Ecology Center’s will be returning to Flushing’s Queens Botanical Garden Sunday July 16th. Residences and small businesses will be able to drop off their unwanted electronics from 10am to 4pm; events are held rain or shine. The collected materials will be either reused or recycled in a local, safe, and sustainable manner. This event is made possible with funding from City Council Member Peter Koo and the NYC Department of Sanitation.


City Council Member Peter Koo stated, “Electronic waste poses a danger to our environment due to the large amount of heavy metals contained in them. Recycling these materials eases the burdens on our landfills, creates jobs and conserves natural resources. A sustainable community takes a conscious effort from all of us, and I’d like to thank the Lower East Side Ecology Center and the Queens Botanical Garden for helping to make our community a cleaner place to live, work and visit.”
