Household Electronics Recycling Day

10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Unitarian Church North, 13800 N. Port Washington Rd.
Rear Parking Lot
Each year millions of pounds of electronic waste (e-waste)
enters our nation’s landfills and America’s appetite for
electronics continues to grow. Hazardous and toxic
materials contained in these electronics often
contaminate Earth and pose a human health threat
unless recycled and handled properly. This is what this
recycling event aims to do – responsibly recycle your electronics – break
them down for scrap metal, erase and reuse the newer hard
drives, and supply rebuildable machines to charities. No
electronics collected will be sold to overseas parties or
brokers. This event is for residential electronics only (no
business equipment) and has no geographical restrictions.
Items accepted include: TVs, computers (and peripherals: keyboard,
mouse, speakers, etc.), monitors, cordless and cell phones, iPods, printers
(including ink and toner), scanners, fax machines, stereos, old holiday lights,
extension cords, PDAs, clock radios, and other consumer electronics.
Items NOT accepted include: microwaves, dehumidifiers, and other
larger appliances, batteries, and light bulbs. The cost will be a $10 per car
DONATION (single household) plus $10 for each TV (no charge for PC or
laptop monitors).
