Holding up to 3 events per year (spring, summer and fall) The Sanitation Coalition facilitate a textile and e-waste disposal location for residents and visitors of surrounding neighborhoods as part of community events.
Through this program it has been possible to take away more than 2,500 lbs of textiles from landfills, donating to Wearable collection for reuse.
E-waste can represent an environmental threat when disposed in landfills because of toxic chemical components that can be released to the ground. Working with the Lower East Side Ecology Center more than thousands of pounds have been properly disposed or repurposed.
If you would like to contribute by giving a small donation so we can organize more events, please do by clicking on the “Donate” Button. We also are open to suggestions and ideas for new events.
