Free Electronic Waste Collection Event Nov. 13

Free Electronic Waste Collection Event Nov. 13

Residents and businesses will have the opportunity to safely dispose of electronic waste conveniently and free of charge at the city’s Electronic Waste Collection Event on Saturday, Nov. 13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Parking Lot I at Brookside Park adjacent to the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center, 360 N. Arroyo Blvd.

E-waste qualified for this special collection, provided by Pasadena Department of Public Works, includes computers, keyboards, printers, monitors, laptops, docking stations, scanners, shredders, fax machines, mice, telephones, televisions, flat screens, VCRs, DVD players, PDAs, cassette players, tape drives, stereos and household batteries.

Many of the products have parts that will be recycled.

By law, e-waste cannot be disposed of in landfills because its hazardous parts can cause environmental damage.

“Electronic waste contaminates our air and water, and is hazardous to human health. We are here to help people in the greater Pasadena area properly recycle e-waste,” said Gabriel Silva, environmental programs manager for Public Works.

For more information go to www.cityofopasadena.net, call (626) 744-4087 or email recycle@cityofpasadena.net.
