Electronic Waste Collection 5-2-2014

Got a bunch of old Game Boys sitting around that none of the kids will play with? The VNC has you covered:

Free of charge, and taking place every first Friday, the Electronic Recycling Solutions Truck will be onsite at the Venice Farmers’ Market, 7:00A.M. – 11:00 A.M., 500 N. Venice Blvd. Venice, CA 90291. The program has been initiated by the Venice Neighborhood Council, and its Environmental Committee. 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.
