Tzu Chi Collegiate Association will host a free electronic waste recycling event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Save Mart at Anderson Road and Hanover Drive.
“Get rid of your old TV or broken monitor and make moving a lot easier,” a news release 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.”
Most of the computer will be recycled, none of it will be shipped overseas and all hard drives will be shredded, a news release said.
Accepted items include monitors, televisions, desktop and notebook PCs, VCRs, stereo equipment, speakers, keyboards, mice, PDAs, digital cameras, zip drives, telephones, cell phones, printers, copiers, laser and multifunction scanners and fax machines.
The group will not accept household appliances (refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.), furniture, batteries, paint, pesticides, used oil, cleaning supplies, fluorescent light bulbs or tires.
All proceeds will help Tzu Chi Foundation, a global nonprofit organization dedicated to community service and disaster relief.
