BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Sunnking, a Brockport-based electronics recycler, will be hosting two electronics recycling events to allow Western New Yorkers to safely get rid of electronics they no longer use.

The company says these recycling events will be the first it has held since the COVID-19 pandemic began and it expects record crowds.

"New health and safety procedures will be in place to ensure a safe environment, including timed appointments, no-contact device removal, and dedicated drive-through lanes."

The first event will be in Batavia on Saturday, August 1, in the parking lot of Genesee County Department of Social Services (5130 E. Main St., #3) from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The second event will be in West Seneca on Saturday, September 19, in the NY DDSO parking lot (1200 E and West Rd, West Seneca, NY 14224) from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

"Looking at the number of sign-ups, people have clearly used the past couple of months at home to take inventory of their devices, and now want to get their space back," said Robert Burns, Director of Marketing for Sunnking.

"Obviously, we've had to change part of our process to ensure a safe environment for our customers and staff," said Burns. "This includes a new preregistration process, so we know how many people to prepare for, and a contact-less experience where we ask drivers to stay in their vehicles and pack their devices in their trunks or truck beds."
