RECYCLING INFO

Recycling/Reusing News

Thanks to SW member Elizabeth Knight for compiling this “Recylopedia” (organized by category) and to Straus News for publishing it in Dirt magazine. For recycling electronics:

Staples takes e-waste, including computer monitors, for free, but no TVs.

Best Buy takes e-waste for free but charges for TVs and computer monitors. $25 a piece.

New Hampton and Newburgh Transfer Stations take TVs only (CRTs and flat screens) for $5 a piece.

The Computer Guy accepts flat screen TVs and anything else that’s electronic, except CRT TVs and monitors.

Information from the Orange County Recycling Coordinator, esiljkovic@orangecountygov.com (845) 291-3246 (Office):

Car batteries and rechargeable batteries for handheld tools can go back to any chain hardware store or to one of our transfer stations or one of our upcoming Household Hazardous Waste events (2018 schedule TBA).

Many of the other types of rechargeable batteries (A, AA, AAA, C, D, etc.) used to be accepted by Interstate Batteries on Hatfield Lane in Goshen, however, last I checked they are paring back on what they are accepting because of the expense.

Alkaline batteries, no program accepts these for recycling. Printer cartridges can be brought back to Staples or can be accepted at an upcoming HHW event.

Here are some helpful links on how to find a mail in program for alkaline batteries:
