Electronic Waste Recycling in New York

As of January 1, 2015, consumers are no longer allowed to dispose of certain types of electronic equipment in landfills, waste-to-energy facilities, in the trash, or at curbside for trash pickup. Instead, consumers now have several legal options to safely dispose of e-waste.

  • Take electronics to a tech firm or the manufacturer
  • Donate your unwanted electronics
  • Sell your unwanted electronics
  • Give your e-waste to a certified e-waste recycler

Manufacturers are required to accept their own brand of equipment in addition to one piece of electronic waste of any manufacturer’s brand if offered by a consumer with the purchase of electronic equipment. However, this still requires the consumer to bring their electronics to a location or mail them back to the manufacturer. This becomes time consuming if you have a lot of electronics to dispose of that are from different manufacturers.
