Electronics Recycling (E-waste) Drop Off Site
The NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act requires recycling of electronic waste to household consumers in the state. It was signed into law by the Governor on May 28, 2010. For additional information on the law visit the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation website for Guidance for Electronic Equipment Recycling.
