Hey NYers! Got Old Electronics? Scrap Your Crap This Weekend in Union Square

Did you know that 70 percent of the toxins found in trash dumps come from discarded consumer electronics? Neither did we. But here’s your chance to totally redeem yourself. Rather than dumping your old electronics in the trash, bring them to Union Square this weekend (or other such events in your neck of the woods!) for proper disposal at Comedy Central’s ‘Address the Mess’ scrap-your-crap event.

It’s free, and best of all, you can nab some good fresh produce from the farmer’s market too! Win win, we say; unless you’re against a clean environment. End stumping. OH yeah, get there after 10 a.m. or before 4 p.m. and you’re good to go.
