Throw out your old electronics in Ridgewood this month at an e-waste recycling event co-sponosored by Addabbo and Holden

Kick off the start of Spring 2022 by properly recycling your old and broken electronic devices at an e-waste recycling event in Ridgewood this month.

State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. has partnered with Councilman Robert Holden, and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation to bring the Lower East Side Ecology Center to Rosemary’s Playground in Ridgewood on Saturday, March 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for an e-waste recycling event. This event will be rain or shine.

“Knowing the right way to recycle your electronics can be confusing here in the city, which is why I enjoy bringing these e-waste recycling events around the district because it allows residents to make sure they properly recycle their electronics right in their own community,” Addabbo said. “Recycling e-waste isn’t just about avoiding a ticket, it is about protecting our environment by not putting harmful materials into the landfills. I want to thank Councilman Holden, the Parks Department and Lower East Side Ecology Center for bringing this event to Ridgewood and allowing our residents the chance to safely get rid of their electronics.”

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 in Ridgewood. For more information, call Senator Addabbo’s office at 718-738-1111.
