Announcing a new Meetup for The Metro NYC Environmental Meetup!

What: Volunteer-America Recycles Day!

When: November 15,[masked]:30 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: To celebrate America Recycles Day, NBC Universal and the City of New
York are teaming up to create "Green Screens", a FREE two-day
Electronics Recycling Collection in all five borough, and they need
over 400 volunteers!

Volunteers get a free organic t-shirt, food and beverages and help
the city keep tons of electronic waste out of the landfill! We
will assist with event set up and help control the flow of the event
by pointing pedestrians and vehicular traffic to the drop-off site to
make sure that recycling is quick and easy. Come help make a difference!

When you RSVP, please email Cathy with your:
1. Full Name
2. Email Address & Phone Number

We will be volunteering as a group on Saturday in Manhattan from 10:30am-2:30pm but if
you want to volunteer at another location or on a different day please
contact them directly at [address removed]. If you'd
like to organize another group for a different location email Cathy so
we can post it on the website.

On America Recycles Day, help clean up NYC and make electronics waste history!
Over 87.5% of electronics waste in the US goes to landfills, but now
there is a better way to reduce waste and protect our environment.

Event Details The collections will take place on Saturday, November 15
and Sunday, November 16. All events will be held from 8am to 2pm, rain
or shine. Visit www.greenisuniversal.com/greenscreens/ for more
information on what can be recycled.
