Out with the Old

How to dispose of old electronics

Since many people received electronics as holiday gifts, the state Department of Environmental Conservation sent out a reminder that it is illegal to discard computers, printers, monitors, televisions or tablets in household trash. These items must be recycled.

In Philipstown, electronics, paper, cardboard and metals can be deposited at the town landfill on Lane Gate Road on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $2 per carload or $5 per truckload. See philipstown.com. Many manufacturers also offer free postage to mail items for recycling.
