If you're like me, you may have some unwanted electronics hanging around the garage, attic or shed that you've been wondering how to dispose of and if you're in the City of Binghamton, you may not want to buy a sticker to pay to have it taken away.

e-Waste Take Back Day is an annual effort to help the community safely recycle unwanted computer products and peripheral equipment (cables, mouse, monitors, etc.), tablets, personal computers, VCR's, DVR, DVD's, GPS, radios, PDA's, telephones, cables, cords and more.

The recycle day recycle day coincides with the Southern Tier's annual Earth Fest and is open to all those who want to safely recycle their personally-owned electronic waste products free‑of‑charge at select Southern Tier locations on Saturday, April 26th  from 8 a.m. to noon. 

According to the official Press Release, white goods and loose batteries are excluded from this offering. The participating companies reserve the right to reject any product.
