Computer recycling in NYC – be green to your machines!

When you’re done with your computer, or your computer is done with you, don’t throw it out with the normal trash.  It is important to recycle your laptops and desktops, or distribute them to someone else to re-use.  These machines have so many different types of electronics that are not safe for the environment when thrown out with the normal trash.  Plus, re-using these potentially hazardous materials is the best way for several reasons: less emissions, less production, and less land fills.

How do you go about recycling or re-using?

  1. When you buy a new computer, ask your manufacturer, i.e. Dell, HP, Sony, if they’ll take back your old computer.  Many companies are doing this now to re-use your parts in a green fashion.
  2. Bring your computer to a local recycling event.  Bryant Park and Bowling Green Parks are experienced venues for this activity in NYC
  3. Go to Freecycle.org to pass along your equipment to another local person. 
  4. Contact your tech support company for recycle pick-up options or ask them if they’ll take your recyclables.

We’re living in a greener environment so having environmental consciousness with our computers is also very important to this goal.
