Check out the E-Waste Warehouse at the Lower East Side Ecology Center in NYC!

Gizmodo recently released a video and write-up on the E-Waste Warehouse, which has been helping the people of New York dispose of their unwanted electronic devices in an eco-friendly way. The warehouse operates as part of the Lower East Side Ecology Center, a non-profit organization that was founded in 1987. The interesting thing is not only the variety of electronics that are in storage at the warehouse, but it’s also the source of where you favorite television show get their historically-accurate gadgets of the era (i.e. the Reagan-era computers in The Americans, the Xerox machines in Mad Men, etc.). The finds like those are located in warehouse’s “prop library”, and are available for rent and use for film and television productions.
