Tekserve recycles over 100 tons of electronics in NYC

January 2011 will go down as one of New York City's greenest months in recent years given Tekserve's quarterly eWaste (electronic waste) drive that safely recycled over 100 tons of old, used and unwanted electronics.

As one of NYC's largest recycling programs, New Yorkers can sleep a little easier at night knowing that they have contributed to significantly reducing carbon footprint and hazardous waste that would have otherwise have gone to a landfill.

Tekserve is New York's largest independent Apple store and service facility who has dedicated quarterly events for the past 4 years to help NYC and the surrounding boroughs' recycle properly.

Quick E-Waste Recycling Facts:

> Attracted over 3300 participants dropping off electronics at 10 locations in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx.

> Exceeded 100 tons in just one month, with ten events.

> 30% more than the total for the entire year of 2010. (approx. 70 tons)
