Electronic waste (or “e-waste”) has historically had a very low rate of recycling, at only 12.5%. While it comprises only a small percent of all waste, it represents the vast majority of toxic waste in landfills. However, when recycled, many highly valuable materials can be recovered from electronics. Currently over $60 million worth of gold and silver inside electronics is dumped into landfills every year. Special e-waste collection drives help address this issue, protecting local and global human and environmental health.
“Anything with a cord” can be recycled at this event, including computers and accessories, lawn and garden equipment, power tools, and kitchen appliances. CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes are acceptable at this time.
Most items will be accepted at no cost. Items that require a disposal fee will have additional costs.
