Recycle Holiday Trees And Unwanted E-Goods

Saturday, Jan 7, 2012

Don't miss the 2012 MulchFest & Electronic Waste Recycling Event. Avoid a post-holiday headache by going green to clean out 2011 holiday trees and unwanted electronic goods

Sponsors: The Alliance for Downtown New York, New York City Departments of Parks and Recreation and Sanitation & the Lower East Side Ecology Center

Co-Sponsors: Con Edison, FiDi Association, Whole Foods, Crumbs, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, New York City Council Member Margaret Chin, & Community Board 1.

Date: Saturday, January 7, 2012 MulchFest: 10 am - 2 pm; E-Waste: 10 am - 4 pm

Location: South end of Bowling Green Park - Broadway @ Whitehall Street. Free hot apple cider, light snacks and recycling bags will be given away.

The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation recommends that anyone planning to drop off a tree remove all lights and ornaments before bringing it to the MulchFest site.

The Downtown Alliance will once again run a Chip Trip, a special Downtown Connection bus that will stop only at major residential hubs: three stops in Battery Park City and three stops on the east side of the district. The Chip Trip bus will be clearly labeled and will run its route every half hour. Residents can board the Chip Trip bus with a tree and the bus will transport them to Bowling Green.

The locations are:

The corner of Wall and William Streets
The corner of John and Gold Streets
Pearl Street between Fulton Street and Beekman Street
West Thames Street between Battery Place and South End Avenue
The corner of South End Avenue and Albany Street

The Lower East Side Ecology Center and Tekserve are hosting the electronic waste event. Items that will be accepted are: working and non-working computers, monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards, mice, cables, televisions, videocassette recorders, DVD players, phones, audio/visual equipment, cell phones and personal digital assistants. For more details or for questions about items that can be accepted at the event, please visit Lower East Side Ecology Center or call (212) 477-4022.
