Help us top last year’s haul of nearly 55,000 pounds of recyclable stuff
Get ready to dispose of your old electronics, household materials and documents environmentally and securely – while reducing clutter in your home and offices. The Energy Corridor Recycles Day is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, November 15, in the parking lot behind the Conoco gas station, N. Eldridge and N. Dairy Ashford, north of I-10.
Part of America Recycles Day, The District and its sponsors have been helping residents and employees in The Energy Corridor properly dispose of e-waste for several years now at this convenient, one-stop annual event.
Got outdated cell phones, stereos and computers? We’ll take them. How about those hulking rear screen projection televisions? Bring those, too. Stacks of documents that need secure shredding? Fill up our shredding truck.
It can’t get any easier than this to recycle stuff that has no place in landfills, along roadsides or taking up space in your home or office. Pack up your vehicle, then head to The Energy Corridor Recycles Day where a host of volunteers will unload your unwanted electronics and other recyclables.
And once you’ve dropped off your recyclables, volunteers will hand you a bag of goodies to take home.
Last year, nearly 30,000 pounds of electronics were dropped off, enough to fill two 18-wheelers to the brim. That’s a lot of stuff that could otherwise leak potentially toxic metals into the environment. And talk about freeing up clutter.
More than 4,300 pounds of household textiles were also recycled during last year’s The Energy Corridor Recycles Day, while more than 14,000 pounds of documents were securely ripped to shreds.
Televisions, VCRs, DVD players, computers, hard drives, telecommunications equipment, game consoles and other electronics will be recycled properly by CompuCycle. You can bring recyclable household materials, including textiles like old clothes and towels, and even batteries.
