There is one coming up, in Loudoun. The details follow:
Verizon is hosting a free electronics recycling event in partnership
with Loudoun County from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the visitor parking
area of the Verizon campus, 22201 Loudoun County Parkway. The event
is open to Loudoun County residents.
Items collected will be recycled or disposed of in an environmentally
friendly way. They include: desktop and laptop computers, computer
cables, mice, and keyboards, desktop printers, paper shredders, gaming
consoles, telephones/answering machines, stereo/audio equipment,
remote controls, cameras, electronic toys (batteries removed) and
small appliances such as coffee makers, toasters and can openers.
Computer monitors, TVs, and other CRT (cathode ray tube) devices will
not be accepted. Nor will refrigerators, freezers, laundry
appliances, or any items that may contain hazardous waste -- such as
batteries, ink and toner, or mercury light bulbs.
Volunteers are needed to assist with unloading customer vehicles. For
more information about the event or other opportunities to recycle
electronics, please contact Tony Hayes, Recycling Specialist, Loudoun
