Dozens of area residents discarded old computers, cell phones, printers and other unused electronic items at a recent “E-recycling spring cleaning day” in Woodside.
The event was hosted by state Assemblywoman Marge Markey and Rep. Joe Crowley, the Queens Democratic Party chairman, both seen here with some of the equipment that was brought in. They are joined by Bill McClean, president of the Boulevard Gardens co-op association, and workers with Green Recycling Management.
“People came on foot and in cars as we collected many containers full of old electronic equipment that will be safely and responsibly recycled to ensure that hazardous or toxic materials they contain do not endanger the environment,” Markey said in a prepared statement.
The assemblywoman is running for re-election and faces a primary challenge from education activist Dmytro Fedkowskyj.
