What:

In honor of World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity will be teaming up with All Green Electronics Recycling to host an electronic recycling event on Saturday, October 6 from 10a.m.-4p.m. The event is free and open to the public and anyone who is interested in disposing their E-waste in a safe and secure environment.

What is E-waste? That dated laptop in your hall closet, that VCR you haven’t used since you got the new DVD player, the dust-covered monitor in your garage or basically anything with a plug that is unused, obsolete or non-working. E-waste contains heavy metals such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, mercury and zinc that contaminate our soil and water, and is responsible for 70 percent of all heavy metals found in landfills today.

Drop off computers, monitors, printers, TVs, VCRs, stereos, and other electronic equipment–anything with a plug and circuit board will be accepted. All Green will properly recycle the items and proceeds will go back to Habitat for Humanity!
