NY Good Questions: Where Do I Recycle my Electrical Stuff?

Hello AT,

I spent the entire day re-organizing my apartment and realized that the 'electrical stuff' boxes have been standing in my closet for the past 4 years and I never, ever ever used any of the stuff in there.

So, I decided, for once and for all that this has to go!

Only problem is...what do I do with it?..

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Many websites talk about the fact that electronic equipment is one of the fastest growing categories of solid waste but on none of them I have found the contact info of a service that recycles everything.

One place recycles cell phones, the other one computers, yet another one recycles cameras ...no specifics on pager recycling programs though! :)

Does that mean I am going to have to rent a car and stop by every single place in NY state to drop off 15 old headphones (including the ones I stole on Delta Airlines), 2 cameras, 27 computer wires and 3 home phones?

How do other people do this? Does anyone know of a service in the New York area that just takes the whole shebang?

Thanks! Elfya
