On Saturday, July 18, Apple reseller and technology services provider Tekserve will hold its latest eWaste Electronics recycling event. The free event, co-hosted by the Lower East Side Ecology Center, will take place at the Tekserve retail store, at 119 West 23rd Street in New York City. It will run from 10am to 4pm, rain or shine.
“With the new state law that prohibits electronics from being discarded in the trash, events such as these are more important than ever for all NYC residents, small businesses and not-for-profits that want to properly recycle their old, non-working and unwanted electronics,” says Albert Garcia, retail director at Tekserve. “Tekserve remains committed to respecting the planet and to supporting such critically important programs as our regular eWaste events. At our spring event, we were able to successfully recycle five and a half tons of electronics and hope to continue to grow these numbers.
“In the post-production industry, technology is always improving, and it’s important to work with the most up-to-date equipment,” he continues. “What Tekserve strives to do, in conjunction with the Lower East Side Ecology Center, is provide a means for safe disposal when it’s time to upgrade. With locations throughout the five boroughs, our quarterly eWaste events make it convenient for both individuals and companies alike to be environmentally responsible.”
While the eWaste recycling drive is open to all unwanted electronics, including Macs and PCs (regardless if they were purchased at the Tekserve store or not), household appliances, such as microwaves and air conditioners, will not be accepted.
Tekserve is also offering a coupon featuring $10 off a $50 purchase or service at Tekserve, or $20 off a $100 purchase or service, to those participating in the eWaste event.
