The first day of Green is Universal and the City of New York’s green screens event was a HUGE hit!

The second and final collection day of green screens was an even bigger hit than Saturday. At almost every location, collection numbers were larger. Check out the widget below. Previous means Saturday, November 15th and Current means today, Sunday, November 16th. Yes, that’s 206,000 lbs. collected just today! For a total New York City collection of 359,000 pounds of electronic waste this weekend. What a wonderful way to kick off Green Week!
Again, I want to thank all of the New Yorkers who turned out in the thousands this weekend to recycle your electronic waste responsibly. I worked at the Queens location and we saw some folks come back up to three times. Every time with a smile and appreciation that we were offering this event. A lot of people also asked when we would do this again. So check back at greenisuniversal.com/greenscreens often for updates on our next event.
