[INTERN] E-Waste recycling internship

The Lower East Side Ecology Center is expanding its electronic waste (e-waste) program and is offering internship positions at its new e-waste warehouse in Gowanus Brooklyn.
Interns will be an integral part of making this program successful and will be involved in a variety of tasks, including:
  • Receiving e-waste at the warehouse
  • Inventorying incoming donations
  • Dismantling materials
  • Testing and refurbishing materials
  • Data entry

Internships will begin in early February and will run through the spring semester. Interns may earn credit, as applicable. Interns are expected to work 15 hours per week. Ideal candidates will be able to stay organized and listen to instructions, interested in waste issues (especially electronic waste issues), and excited about local reuse. Being technologically savvy is a plus.

Beyond that, the experience would provide access to an enormous amount of electronics that would make for an amazing source of materials for ITP-minded projects. I am particularly interested in having someone who is savvy with computer software and hardware (mac/pc) to help me with some of our component harvesting and refurbishing ambitions.
