E-waste Recycling with KTMB

October 17, 2010

Partners from all over the community are joining together to hold another community e-waste recycling event to help residents properly dispose of old electronics and TVs and give back to the community. New2U Computers, in partnership with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB), the City of Reno, the City of Sparks, and Washoe County District Health Department, are joining together with many community sponsors for the Community e-Waste Recycling Event on Saturday, October 23, 2010, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the old Park Lane Mall site (310 E. Plumb Lane). Sponsors for the event include Whole Foods Market, News Channel 2, Reno News and Review, Americom Radio, Merlone Geier Partners, Castaway Trash Hauling, and Sierra Restroom Solutions.

Disposal of electronics is FREE. However, all televisions require a disposal voucher, which can be purchased in advance for $10 per TV from New2U Computers and Whole Foods Market, or on the day of the event for $15 per TV at the site. The fees will cover the cost of proper electronic recycling. No household appliances can be accepted. Event is open to residents only. Businesses can arrange for pick-up directly through New2U Computers.

In addition to TVs, you can recycle items such as computers, laptops, monitors, keyboards, cords/cables, speakers, power supplies, printers, DVD players, and cell phones. All donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be provided. Electronics are recycled by Department of Defense regulations and a certificate of data destruction will be available. Items that can’t be accepted are microwaves, toasters, blenders, and other similar kitchen appliances.

Volunteers are needed to help with the event. For more information or to volunteer, contact New2U Computers at (775) 329-1126 or sign up with KTMB.
