With the rapid pace at which technology is advancing, people are purchasing new computer systems, televisions, DVD players and other electronic components in record numbers. Industry experts estimate that American consumers dispose of 400 million units of electronic equipment per year. Recycling electronic waste protects the environment by keeping toxic materials, such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic from entering the waste stream.
In accordance with the New York State Electronic Recycling and Reuse Act of 2010, beginning January 1, 2015 consumers are prohibited from disposing of electronic waste at any solid waste management facility or placing electronic waste in the trash or at curbside for trash collection.

All televisions, computers, computer components (including  cables, cords and wiring), monitors, tablets, e-readers, electronic keyboards, mice, fax machines, scanners, printers, VCRs, DVRs, DVD players, digital converter boxes, cable or satellite receivers, electronic and video game consoles and portable digital music players will be accepted for E-cycling. Cell phones are not accepted.
