Free eWaste Recycling Event Planned to Help Benefit South Bay Family YMCA
Locally-based eWaste recycler Recycle San Diego and the South Bay Family YMCA have partnered to host an eWaste Event on January 12, 2013.
Jeffrey Harding the Founder and President of Recycle San Diego is enthusiastic about working with a group of dedicated citizens committed to removing eWaste from the waste stream. “eWaste that we collect is diverted from the landfills and helps prevent heavy metals from leaching into the soil. In fact, many items can be refurbished and used again, prolonging their productive live cycle.”
Items that can be recycled include: computers, monitors, TVs, laptops, cables, printers, fax machines, scanners, DVD players, VCRs, and other electronic items.
Recycle San Diego wishes to remind the public that it is illegal to dispose of e-Waste in the trash and California requires that companies recycle their e-Waste. California currently has the most comprehensive landfill ban in the nation, curbing both the illegal disposal and export of the largest category of toxic electronics which includes CRT TVs and computer monitors.
Founded in 2006, Recycle San Diego is the #1 community resource for San Diego County, providing the most universal and innovative waste collection systems in the industry. Recycle San Diego believes in safe, environmentally friendly ways to reuse, recycle and repurpose eWaste of all types. “We recycle anything that plugs in!”
