LESEC provides community-based recycling and composting programs and encourages local stewardship of green space. The Lower East Side Ecology Center (LESEC) is working with Pure + Applied to develop exhibition (phase 1) and marketing materials (phase 2) to promote its new
E-Waste Warehouse, a permanent drop-off location for unwanted and broken electronics in New York City. The warehouse doesn’t handle the recycling of electronics, it’s a collection point for e-waste which is then transported to professional e-waste recyclers. Because LESEC is able to transport the e-waste in a tractor trailer there are fewer truck miles associated with the transportation.
