From the Venice Neighborhood Council:
The program has been initiated by the Venice Neighborhood Council, and its Environmental Committee. The Venice Neighborhood Council will bring the E-Waste truck to the Farmer’s Market regularly, depending on the needs of the Venice Community.
Interesting E-waste facts provided by ERS: Each person generates an average of 12 pounds of E-Waste per year. Only 15% of that E-Waste gets recycled. 70% of people stockpile unwanted electronics in their garage. The rest ends up in landfills taking up space and leaching toxic chemicals into the groundwater.
Electronic Recycling Solutions is a Collector of E-waste approved by the California Integrated Waste Management Board and disposes of E-waste in a manner that protects the environment.
