*UPDATE: We will be postponing Load OUT! until Sandy sufficiently blows over. Stay tuned for updates next week.*
FREE E-Waste collection by Lower East Side Ecology Center and clothing/textile recycling by GrowNYC / Wearable Collections
$5 for the general public
Load OUT! is a riot of repurposing and recycling activities that showcase creative thinking about sustainability and the arts. FABnyc will gather gently used materials from arts organizations and businesses throughout the Lower East Side for a one of a kind extravaganza. Take home all the costumes, props, and furniture you need for your next artistic endeavor. The items left behind from this event will be repurposed or recycled by GrowNYC, Wearable Collections, The Lower East Side Ecology Center, Film Biz, Build it Green, and the NYC Department of Sanitation.
Whatever you decide to take away with you is FREE of charge!
