— Recycle San Diego, April 17, 2013
San Diego, CA – Recycle San Diego and Palomar Family YMCA have partnered to host an eWaste Recycling Event on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 10 am–2 pm in the YMCA’s parking lot at 1050 N Broadway, Escondido.
Jeffrey Harding, the Founder and President of Recycle San Diego, is happy to partner with a not-for-profit institution. “The Palomar Family YMCA and the County of San Diego will both benefit from this eWaste recycling event. A portion of the proceeds will go to further the YMCA’s programs, and the County will get thousands of pounds of eWaste diverted from our local landfills. Reports state that consumers recycle only 15% of their computers, which means 85% end up in landfills. We need to continue to get the word out that Recycle San Diego offers a free and easy way for people to dispose of their eWaste responsibly and legally.”
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 companies to 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, repurpose, and recycle electronics of all types. “We recycle anything that plugs in or runs on batteries!”
