Time for Another Electronics Recycling Collection at the Zoo!

The Buffalo Zoo’s Earth Smart Squad will partner with Sunnking Inc. to host another electronics recycling collection event!

We held an event in April and it was very successful! We wanted to give Western New Yorkers another opportunity to get rid of some of some clutter while they're getting ready for the holiday season. 
The collection will take place on Saturday, November 15 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Zoo’s main parking lot off of Parkside Ave.

The Earth Smart Squad wants you to keep the planet in mind while you start preparing for the holidays. Electronic waste shouldn’t be thrown out with household trash. Some items may contain materials that are harmful to the environment, and most items can actually be recycled. Electronics recycling facilities are able to dispose of electronic waste in an environmentally responsible way.

Items that will NOT be accepted include batteries, and large appliances.

Anyone who brings their unwanted electronics to the Zoo on November 15 will receive a coupon for $1 off Zoo admission on that day.

The Buffalo Zoo’s Earth Smart Squad’s mission is to be leaders in sustainability by inspiring our organization to reduce its carbon footprint, while empowering the community to engage in green practices.
