Addabbo to co-host e-waste recycling event in Ridgewood in 2019

Kick off the New Year by getting rid of your old and broken electronics at an e-waste event in Ridgewood in January.

State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. has once again partnered with the Lower East Side Ecology Center, along with the Friends of Rosemary’s Playground and the Department of Parks and Recreation, to bring an e-waste recycling event to Rosemary’s Playground on Saturday, January 26, 2019. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will take place rain or shine.

“I truly love co-hosting these e-waste recycling events throughout the year because it gives my constituents an easy way to recycle their old or broken electronics at a central location right in their neighborhood,” Addabbo said. “With the sanitation laws seemingly always changing, it can get confusing on what can legally be thrown out with your curbside recycling. So if you got some new electronics over the holiday season and need a place to get rid of your old ones, come down to Rosemary’s Playground and take part in this great event.”

Electronics accepted at the event include working and non-working computers, monitors, printers and scanners, keyboards, mice, cables, TVs, VCRs and DVD players, phones, audio/visual equipment, cell phones and PDA’s.

Rosemary’s Playground is located on Fairview Avenue between Woodbine and Madison streets.
