Description: Bring unwanted or broken electronics, and we will dispose of them free of charge. E-waste contains many toxic substances that are hazardous to human health and to the environment, and although it only makes up 1% of the volume in a landfill, it contributes 70% of the toxins. Recycling events such as this one keep these materials out of the waste stream and allow them to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
