Tri City Rentals is teaming up with local nonprofit Capital Roots for their 5th annual Electronic Waste Collection event in the Capital Region. This event provides residents and the entire Capital Region the opportunity to recycle electronic waste free of charge and close to home. Residents and the public can rest easy knowing that any personal data on hard drives or similar data storage devices will be safely destroyed and that community landfills will be saved from the release of non-biodegradable and potentially hazardous materials. For every 10 pounds e-waste recycled throughout the event, Tri City Rentals will donate $1 to Capital Roots. Last year, Tri City Rentals recycled more than 45,000 pounds of e-waste.


Beginning January 1, 2015, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation issued an e-waste disposal ban on individuals and households as part of the Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act signed into law in 2010. This ban makes it illegal for individuals and households to dispose of certain types of electronic equipment in landfills, the trash, waste-to-energy facilities, and curbside trash pickup. This free recycling event gives residents an opportunity to easily comply with the law.


Items accepted at the event include computer towers, laptops, servers, monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, cords, printers, projectors, fax machines, microwaves, cellphones, pagers, televisions, desktop copiers, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, turntables, clock radios, cameras, camera chargers, routers, switches, hubs, telephones, and video gaming systems.


Tri City Rentals has owned and managed premier apartment communities throughout New York state for the past 50 years. Communities owned by the company are located in the three largest regions of upstate New York. Tri City Rentals owns and operates 24 communities in the Capital Region, including communities in Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga and Warren counties. Learn more at
