Dear Miss Heather,

I hope that you are well.  We would greatly appreciate it if you could include a public service announcement about our electronics recycling event (in partnership with the Lower East Side Ecology Center) on Grand Street between Graham Avenue and Humboldt Street this Saturday, April 5th from 10 am to 4 pm, rain or shine.

As you know, if put in the trash, these items end up in landfills, leaching toxins into our ground water.

A list of acceptable working and nonworking electronics is below or here:

• Computers (laptops & desktops, servers, mainframes)
• Monitors
• Printers, scanners, fax-machines, copiers
• Network devices (routers, hubs, modems, etc.)
• Peripherals (keyboards, mice, cables, cords, chargers, etc.)
• Tablets and E-readers
• Components (hard drives, CD-ROMs, circuit boards, power supplies, etc.)
• TVs, VCRs, DVRs, & DVD Players
• Digital Converter Boxes, Cable/Satellite Receivers
• Portable music players
• Audio-visual equipment
• Video-games
• Cell phones, pagers, PDAs
• Telecommunication (phones, answering machines, etc.)

In addition, participants can be entered into a raffle to win a MacBook Air courtesy of TekServe.

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Done!

From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: Want FIOS?

As many of my fellow Greenpointers are well aware, our community is a hodge-podge of FIOS service. Many theories about why this is so abound. The most plausible seems to be that after Sandy hit Verizon ceased installation so as to conduct much-needed repairs elsewhere— but I digress. Thanks to Slava Rarr and Joe Lentol you can get it. Spread the word!
