Have you been meaning to get rid of that outdated media device and don’t know what to do with it? Do you have a computer that doesn’t seem to work anymore, but not sure if it’s salvageable?

Bring your E-Waste to Greater Ossining’s Earth Day Festival on April 19th and we’ll tell you whether it can fixed—and if not, we’ll show you how it can be re-purposed, re-used & recycled, and even provide a tax-deductible receipt!

Here’s what’s OK to bring down:

  • Any/all Computers (including peripheral devices)
  • monitors
  • printers
  • scanners
  • laptops
  • keyboards
  • copiers/multi-function printers
  • cell phones
  • DVD players
  • Vacuums
  • Power tools
  • any small electronic household items
  • Although they are not technically e-waste, the barge has a special affection for bicycles & scooters, so bring those too!

Please do NOT bring:

  • Microwaves
  • TVs
  • anything with gas oil
  • transmission fluid or lubricants (must be emptied of all before recycling)
