Do you have an old cell phone, TV or computer at home and wonder what you should do with it? Join us on Earth Day (April 22) from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to properly dispose of your e-waste at the New Albany Service Center. Please note: We do not accept kitchen appliances such as microwaves, fridges, etc. We also don’t accept refrigerant items. All personal data stored on hard drives will be destroyed. Wondering what e-waste is? E-waste (electronic waste) includes anything with plugs, cords and electronic components. Common sources of e-waste include televisions, computers, mobile phones and any type of home appliance, from air conditioners to children’s toys. Wondering why we need to properly dispose of e-waste? When broken or unwanted electronics are dumped in a landfill, toxic substances like lead and mercury can leach into soil and water. Electronics also contain valuable non-renewable resources including gold, silver, copper, platinum, aluminum and cobalt. This means when we dispose of them without recycling, we are throwing away precious materials.
