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.

We have contracted with EWASTE+ for our past collection events. You can contact them and arrange for pick-up at your facility. They charge a pick-up fee, so it may be beneficial for you to collaborate with other businesses so you can share the fee. Call to see if a business is scheduling a pick-up near you.

Based in Victor, New York near Rochester, New York, EWASTE+ has pick up service for businesses in the Syracuse area.
