Electronic Waste Recycle Day 2017 in Ironbound
Date(s): April 19, 2017 at 7:30am - 2:00pm
Location: Peter Francisco Park
Recycle your old TVs, PCs and Laptops, printers, small household appliances, photo/video cameras, phones and other e-waste.
Prohibited items include hazardous wastes/liquids, loose batteries, toner cartridges, fluorescent lamps, and appliances like washers, dryers, and stoves. Household appliances must not contain freon or oil, like refrigerators, air conditioners, and space heaters.
Collected materials will be recycled at Covanta’s electronic waste processing facility, an R2 and e-Stewards certified operation, and at Urban Renewal’s Training & Development Center located in the greater Newark area and at their R2 facility in Philadelphia. Both entities provide data destruction security measures, however it is recommended that residents wipe all data from their devices prior to dropping them off.
For Ironbound residents and business owners that need assistance in delivering their electronic waste to the drop off location, arrangements can be made beforehand by contacting the IBID. To schedule a drop off, or for information about pick up options on April 22 for your e-waste, contact the IBID’s Operations Manager, Chris Bernardo, at 973-491-9191 or via email at email@example.com.
