New Yorkers discard some 12,000 tons of waste each day that is exported to landfills and incinerators in other states! Here’s your chance to help NYC reduce waste and keep our environment clean by finding new homes for your old stuff, and getting some things you can use in the process. Leftovers will be donated or recycled to every extent possible.
WHAT TO BRING:
Bring unwanted clothing, housewares and other reusable items to share* or simply bring a tote bag to fill. Bring friends and family too!
Bring electronics to be reused, recycled and redistributed through Rattech, who will accept old computers, electronic equipment, printers, monitors, CD’s, toner / ink cartridges, etc.
Got wire hangers?
Bring ’em to the FreeMeet so we can hang clothes and recycle the hangers afterwards.
Bring used BRITA FILTERS to donate to the Take Back the Filter campaign
*please bring portable items only and log on to www.Freecycle.org to give away furniture and other heavy stuff.
