The NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and the NFL are partnering with Verizon and the Broadway Green Alliance to collect and safely recycle electronic waste in New York and New Jersey. The recycling events are open to the public, and are a part of the group’s commitment to a cleaner environment.
The first of two collections will take place in New Jersey on January 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the AnythingIT Fair Lawn Headquarters located at 17-09 Zink Place in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. AnythingIT, which is e-Stewards certified, is the electronics recycler for both events.
The following day, on January 8, a collection will take place in New York City at Duffy Square in Times Square, off of 7th Avenue between 46th and 47th Streets. The public will be encouraged to drop-off their electronic waste between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
“The Host Committee is committed to making a positive environmental impact in New York and New Jersey through a series of initiatives, such as our tree planting efforts and now the e-waste collection,” said Alfred F. Kelly, Jr. President and CEO, NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee. “We are proud to join the NFL, Verizon and the Broadway Green Alliance to help collect and recycle e-waste and to create a cleaner, safer environment while educating the public.”
