The non-profit Lower East Side Ecology Center, based in an electronic waste recycling and reuse warehouse in Gowanus, is hosting an open house and family fun Halloween party Saturday, October 27, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The address is 469 President Street, between 3rd and Nevins, in Gowanus.
During the event: Decorate pumpkins and work on your electronic-themed Halloween costume; get your problematic Mac gadgets evaluated by a Tekserve technician; tour the warehouse and learn about e-waste recycling and reuse; browse the selection of refurbished electronics (and preview items for sale on the online store); and enter the raffle for gift cards and meals from local restaurants 606 R&D, The Grocery, the Sustainable NYC store and pickle-making with Brooklyn Brine. The event is free and “sure to be the perfect mix of spooky and techie,” the Lower East Side Ecology Center assures.
