PROSPECT PARK - The Lower East Ecology Center is offering Brooklyn residents a way to get rid of their obsolete electronics and do something good for the environment at the same time.

The group is holding its eight annual "after the holidays" electronic-waste recycling drive. The ecology center says some of the equipment is ridden with lead and mercury.

The ecology center is trying to collect 100 tons of e-waste in January.
