SAN DIEGO–Locally-based eWaste recycler Recycle San Diego and the Casa de las Campanas Senior Living Facility are working together to host an eWaste event on March 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Casa de las Campanas Senior Living Facility.
Jeffrey Harding, the Founder and President of Recycle San Diego, is working again with the environmentally-conscious residents of Casa de las Campanas who form an enthusiastic group committed to removing eWaste from the waste stream.
“People of all ages realize that it is important to help protect our environment by diverting heavy metals and toxic substances from our local landfills. Older cathode ray tube (CRT) TV sets can contain as much as four pounds of lead, and we are committed to educating the public about safe and legal eWaste disposal.”
Items that can be recycled include: computers, monitors, TVs, laptops, cables, printers, fax machines, scanners, DVD players, VCRs, and other electronic items.
Casa de las Campanas Senior Living Facility is located at 18655 West Bernardo Drive in San Diego.
Recycle San Diego reminds 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 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.
