The lovely Lower East Side Ecology Center, the folks who run the compost drop-off in Union Square, have a bunch of collection dates for recycling electronics coming up. Just FYI, in case you have some electronics to recycle. (Some other, non LESEC, folks in the mix as well.) Copied wholesale from the freecycle email:
