Electronic Waste Recycling at Queens Botanical Garden

Don’t know what to do with your old electronics? Has that broken camera been sitting in your basement/garage/attic for longer than you care to admit? Then bring it, and every other electronic you don’t need or want anymore to the Queens Botanical Garden for their E-Waste Recycling Day.
