Got E-Waste in Glendale?

Saturday is the E-Waste event at my church… here is a reprint of the post. Come on down!!

Now that the holidays are over and you’ve integrated all the new electronic wizzy-wigs into your life, you no doubt have last years wizzy-wigs cluttering up your Glendale Home space. What to do?

Here is a definition of e-waste from the Ca.Gov recycle website:

E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.” Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately, electronic discards is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste stream.

The LA Citywide Children’s Christian Choir is sponsoring an e-waste program at Glendale Presbyterian Church. Here are the details:

    Kendyl, I would also add that Glendale provides places where residents can bring their e-waste and hazardous household waste (paint, pesticides, sharps, motor oil, expired medicine, …) for recycling or disposal.
