“Red, White & Recycle” The North Fremont Business District and Monterey County Fairgrounds Invites The Community to Recycle Their Electronic Waste on Sunday July 1, 2012

June 14, 2012, Monterey, CA. The North Fremont Business District and Monterey County Fairgrounds are teaming up with Electronic Recyclers for a “Red, White & Recycle!” Electronic Waste Recycling Event” on Sunday, July 1, 2012 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. This free event offers a convenient drop-off location for “e-waste”. The public should enter through Gate 8 at 2004 Fairgrounds Road in Monterey (behind CVS Pharmacy) to conveniently drive up and drop off their items.

The collection will provide local residents and businesses with an opportunity to safely unload their old computers, television sets, monitors and other out-dated, unusable or unwanted electronic items for proper recycling. The recyclable items can include TVs, Monitors, LCD Screens, Plasma Screens, Laptops, Computer Towers, Printers, Copiers, Faxes, Calculators, Stereo Systems, Keyboards, Mice, Speakers, Cell Phones and Telephones.  (Note: no batteries can be recycled at this event.)

It is illegal to simply throw an old television or computer monitor or other e-waste in the trash in the state of California.  Electronic items have toxic elements like lead and mercury in them that are environmentally hazardous when they are dumped into landfills.  By law, such products must now be recycled properly and in ways that won’t harm the environment.

In an attempt to help residents and the environment, the North Fremont Business District and Monterey County Fairgrounds have become proactive in its efforts to collect electronic waste.  The electronics collected will then be trucked away and recycled by Fresno-based Electronic Recyclers, the largest recycler of electronic waste in California and the Monterey County Fairground’s partner for this event.  The collection is designed to provide local businesses and schools with an easy way to get rid of their old electronics.

Each year in California, hundreds of thousands of computers, copiers, fax machines, printers, televisions and other electronic items are replaced by newer, more advanced equipment.   It is estimated that up to 75 percent of these outdated electronics are in storage because people don't know what to do with them.

For more information, please call the Monterey County Fairgrounds office at 831-372-5863.
