City of Binghamton Hosting Free Electronics Drop-Off Day For ResidentsPosted: Updated:
If you live in the City of Binghamton and want to get rid of unwanted electronics, you can do so Saturday, August 10th at the Department of Public Works Garage, located at 17 Broad St.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. residents can drop off up to five electronic items. Acceptable materials include televisions, computers, printers, keyboards, radios, stereos, VCRs, microwaves, cell phones and fax machines.
New York State requires residents to properly recycle electronic waste, which is why many electronics can't be collected curbside.
Most countertop appliances, such as coffee makers and toasters, along with vacuums and landline telephones can be placed in regular trash.
If you need to get rid of larger appliances, including refrigerators, freezers, humidifiers, and air conditioners, you should call DPW dispatch at (607) 772-7020 to schedule a curbside pickup.
Saturday's free electronics drop-off is only open to City of Binghamton residents. Proof of residency will be required at the time of drop off.
