Free electronics recycling for employees March 12
Edmonds Community College will offer free electronics recycling to students and employees
10 a.m.-2 p.m., Wednesday, March 12.
The Green Team and Lynnwood-based E-Waste will collect unwanted electronic equipment to be recycled properly. At the same time, cell phones will be collected to support breast cancer research. This event is associated with our participation in the two-month RecycleMania Tournament.
Signs will be provided from the entrance at 68th Ave. W and 200th St. SW. Download the college’s parking lot map at www.edcc.edu/parking.
Free to recycle will be computers, laptops, monitors, TVs, and cell phones. Other electronics — such as washers, dryers, VCRs, and printers — will be accepted for a small fee.
Mercury, lead, cadmium, and other hazardous and toxic material can be found in electronic waste, and the Environmental Protection Agency reported in 2009 that more than 82 percent of used electronics went to landfills and incinerators.
