Letter: Stop littering the city with electronic waste

New York State law requires that televisions and computer monitors must be recycled. They cannot be included with garbage.

While well intended, the law wasn’t publicized and thus televisions litter our sidewalks. Older broken TV tubes can release toxic lead dust.

Either the city or a nonprofit environmental organization should use a truck and drive around the city, picking up and properly recycling them.
