The Gowanus E-waste Warehouse is a large facility in Brooklyn that allows New Yorkers to drop off and recycle discarded, old, and/or broken electronics for free. The goal of the warehouse is to reduce the contamination that the toxic electronic parts would add to our landfills, and ultimately, our environment. Learn more about the warehouse in this video from our friends at BRIC TV.

The Gowanus E-Waste Warehouse is on a mission to divert as much electronic waste from landfills as possible.Through their recycling program, NYC residents can drop off electronic waste free of charge. Some electronics can be refurbished and sold at their Re-use Store, providing low-cost electronics to the community, while others are kept to provide props to filmmakers.
