Enough time has passed since Christmas that you can ditch all that crap you immediately broke with your clumsy, nog-drunk hands. As you well know by now, e-waste doesn’t go in with your regular trash, unless you love the tangy taste of chemicals in your water. Instead, take them to one of the e-waste recycling events in Brooklyn in this weekend: one is at McCarren Park (Bedford Ave. at North 12 St.) on Saturday and another at Prospect Park (Prospect Park West at 3rd St.) on Sunday, both from 10am-4pm. The list of accepted items is below, which includes most things (not your fridge).
