The New York State Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act requires manufacturers to provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to most consumers in the state.
On January 1, 2015, covered electronic equipment may no longer be accepted for disposal at a solid waste management facility from any person as garbage. Residents are required to properly recycle electronics covered by the Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act. Electronics are still accepted as part of the County hazardous waste & electronics recycling program at the landfill.
For more information and text of the Act visit NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
