Free e-waste recycling event set Saturday

From page A4 | May 31, 2012 |

A free e-waste recycling event will be offered by the UC Davis chapter of the Tzu Chi Foundation from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Save Mart at 1900 Anderson Road.

“Get rid of your old TV or broken monitor,” organizers said. “You won’t even have to get out of your car. Just drive through the parking lot and we’ll do all the heavy lifting for you. Best of all, it’s free and will only take a few minutes.”

All of the e-waste will be disposed of properly: none of it will be shipped overseas, most of the computers will be recycled and hard drives will be shredded for security.

The group will accept computer monitors, televisions, desktop and notebook computers, VCRs, stereo equipment, speakers, keyboards, mice, PDAs, digital cameras, zip drives, telephones, cell phones, printers, copiers, laser and multifunction scanners and fax machines.

Items that won’t be accepted include household appliances (i.e. refrigerators, washers, dryers), furniture and hazardous household waste such as batteries, paint, pesticides, used oil, cleaning supplies, fluorescent light bulbs and tires.

Proceeds from recycling the e-waste will go to Tzu Chi Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to community service and disaster relief.

This event is sponsored by California Electronic Asset Recovery Inc., a state-approved electronic waste collector and recycler. For more information, visit www.cearinc.com. For optimal security, CEAR shreds all computer hard drives. The secure facility is monitored 24/7 by surveillance cameras. Also, CEAR is a proud member of the Basel Action Network’s responsible e-steward recyclers. For more, go to www.e-stewards.org.
