Recycling of Electronics and Peripherals – Leave the Hassle to Leave No Footprint

As of January 1st it will be illegal to throw away electronics. Let’s hope it will be more convenient to dispose of electronics than it is today. Alternatively, let Leave No Footprint deal with the hassle. Contact Christine at: (646)229-9282 [email protected]
