  • The New York State Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act created a new electronics recycling and take back program in New York in 2011. The law is supposed to provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to household consumers in the state. Beginning in 2011, manufacturers of covered electronic equipment were required to take back from consumers a wide range of electronic waste. For a listing of recycling sites, click here.
