So your landlord didn’t sign your building up for the electronics recycling program the city is offering now. Well, espite that, you can still get rid of that dot matrix printer you haven’t been using without just leaving it on the side of the road. This Sunday and Monday at Prospect Park, an environmental groups is holding an “Upcycling” event, where dropped off electronics will be fixed up and donated to be used.
Upcycle Fest will take place on Sunday, October 27 from 9am to 2pm and Monday, October 28 from 8am to 2pm. To participate, all you need to do is bring some old electronics that you no longer have a use for and drop them off with a friendly Causes International representatives. If you have a whole bunch of stuff, or something really big, you can drive up and drop it off at the Willink Entrance at Flatbush Avenue and Empire Boulevard. Hell, you can even bring wires if you’re tired of tripping yourself up in them and almost falling down the stairs.
Once dropped off, the old electronics you thought were junk will find new life and be donated to non-profits and charities across the US, and thus won’t clog up landfills. And you’ll have more space to compile more consumer-society driven crap, thus keeping the cycle going, forever.
