Tomorrow is Electronics Recycling Day

I’ve had a bunch of broken electronic waste stashed in my garage for about six months, just waiting to hear when the next urban recycling day was to be scheduled. It turns out that that day is tomorrow, and it’s taking place at the Buffalo Zoo (coinciding with Zooper Saturday). There’s nothing worse than seeing electronic equipment, such as microwaves, stereos, computers, etc. thrown out in the garbage. Now it’s your chance to be green, while helping out The Zoo at the same time. Just wrangle your electronics together, bring them over to The Zoo’s parking lot (located at Parkside Ave. and Jewett) from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. They’ll take care of the rest.

*A list of acceptable materials for recycling can be found at Question regarding what can or cannot be accepted can also be directed to Additional information about Sunnking’s data security practices can be found at For more information about the actual event, please contact the Buffalo Zoo at (716) 837-3900 or visit Each individual who recycles an item will receive a $1 off admission to the Buffalo Zoo (valid for this day only). A percentage of revenue from each pound of waste also goes to The Zoo. Computer hard drives will be scrubbed. Gas powered equipment, household hazardous waste and items containing Freon (air conditioners, de-humidifiers, refrigerators, etc.) will not be accepted.
