Our electronics and textiles recycling efforts are a success!

Dear NaBors,

The city and non-profit organization that sponsor our electronics and textiles recycling bins have shared our 2015 statistics with us.

We recycled 290 lbs of electronic waste in 2015, keeping toxins out of landfills and our co-op in compliance with the city’s rule against including electronics in regular trash—at no cost to us.

Thank you for placing electronics waste in the e-cycleNYC bin by the elevator in the basement of 37 Nagle, instead of into regular trash!

Please note that only e-waste (telecommunication and computer equipment) should be placed in the e-cycleNYC bin. Please do not deposit household appliances, media or other non-accepted items into the bin. Thanks for your help with this!

We recycled 3,465 lbs of textiles and clothing accessories in 2015, keeping more than 2½ tons of material out of landfills and supporting the work of the respected and effective Housing Works, a non-profit organization that provides housing and support services for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS—at no cost to us, complete with donation receipts for charitable (up to $250) tax write-off purposes.

Thank you for placing clean all-fabric items (in any condition of wear) and usable clothing accessories into the re-fashioNYC bin in the laundry room of 37 Nagle, instead of into regular trash!

Please note that only clean textiles (clothing, household linens, rags) and clothing accessories (belts, footwear, bags) should be placed in the re-fashioNYC bin, and that items should ideally be bagged. Please do not deposit non-fabric items other than clothing accessories into the bin. Thanks for your help with this!

Yay, us! Let’s keep on keeping our e-waste and textiles out of landfills and contributing to the health and wellbeing of our city.
