With regard to electronics, you can discard everything but rechargeable batteries in the trash until 2015. Sellers of cell phones, rechargeable batteries, and CFL bulbs are already required to take them back. Starting in 2015, sellers must take back some electronics, like computers and  televisions.

The Lower East Side Ecology Center works toward a more sustainable New York City by providing community-based recycling and composting programs, developing local stewardship of green space, and increasing community awareness, involvement and youth development through environmental education programs. The Ecology Center has opened permanent recycling center, the E-Waste Warehouse.  In addition, it sponsors regular ewaste events across the four boroughs, including some sponsored by TekServe in Manhattan. See its schedule of upcoming events.

Commercial services, like eRevival LLC, will take electronics for a fee. This can be especially useful for small business, but you may find them useful as well.
