Tekserve, a leading provider of technology solutions for creative professionals based in New York, has announced its next e-scrap Electronics Recycling Event in New York for Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016. The free event, co-hosted by the Lower East Side Ecology Center (Ecology Center), will take place at the Tekserve retail store in Chelsea at 119 W. 23rd St. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We are excited to kick off our ninth year of partnering with the Ecology Center in what Tekserve believes is an important program for New Yorkers,” says Albert Garcia, Tekserve retail director. “As a result of its e-waste events around New York and the five boroughs, the Ecology Center recycled an unprecedented 219 tons of electronics in 2015—16.5 [tons] of which was proudly recycled as a result of the events we hosted at the store. We are happy to kick off the New Year, providing our community with the opportunity to safely and legally recycle their electronics.”

Tekserve says it also will be rewarding participants with an opportunity to earn a special discount when shopping for a new Apple device, accessory or in-store service. At the e-waste event, Tekserve will offer coupons featuring $10 off a $50 purchase or service at Tekserve or $20 off a $100 purchase or service to those participating in the e-waste event. In addition, attendees also can receive an additional $5 off their purchases while redeeming their coupons if they show that they have checked in at Tekserve on Facebook or Yelp, according to the company.

Tekserve says while the e-scrap recycling drive is open to all unwanted electronics, Mac® or PC (regardless if they were purchased at the Tekserve store or not), household appliances, such as microwaves and air conditioners, will not be accepted.
