Lower East Side Ecology Center

worm.jpg Two friends in two days have sent me links to New York City green-minded events organized or endorsed by the Lower East Side Ecology Center. This Sunday, they’re collecting electronic waste in Union Square. They also have listings for amazing-sounding workshops on worms and composting. I can’t wait to check out a work workshop and report back!

    And the list of electronic waste they accept for recycling is surprisingly long – it includes old media like cassette tape and floppy disks. I finally combed through all my crap and am ready for Sunday.

    For more heavy duty electronics recycling, check out the TechnoTrashcan service offered by Green Disk.

    For offices or other bigger-than-average generators of electronic waste, they offer to send a TechnoTrashcan too your location. When it fills up, you ship it off, and they send you an empty TechnoTrashcan and you start all over.

    Best of all, it sounds like the overwhelming majority of this stuff actually gets recycled, and not just dumped in its own little corner of the garbage heap.

    Hey all, didn’t know where to post this on the site, so I’m putting it under this compost-related article. A woman in Vermont named Megan heads up a door-step compost pick-up recycling program; check out the website– Her work is under threat of losing funding and she needs folks to sign a petition. Her work should be replicated everywhere else and remain a model! She needs your support!! I wish I could start such a business in my community!
