Gather up your unwanted televisions, computers and other electronic items and get them recycled at Denver’s ‘No Charge’ Electronics Recycling Collection Event
on Saturday, March 28
. Unlike other e-cycle events which charge residents a fee to cover the costs of electronics recycling, during this one-time special event the costs of recycling will be covered by our sponsors and partners.
Don’t miss your chance to take advantage of this unique opportunity to recycle electronics free-of-charge, help protect the Colorado environment, and get rid of unwanted items in your home. Make your appointment now before space runs out.
The Electronics Recycling event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
at East High School’s football field parking lot at 1650 Josephine Street between 16th & 17th Avenues, just south of City Park.
Event participation is by appointment only
, so pre-register online at mar28-ecycle.eventbrite.com
. Participation is easy, just select your appointment time slot and then show up with your old electronic items on March 28th during your scheduled appointment.
Items accepted for recycling include:
Televisions, monitors, CPUs, laptops, printers, scanners, faxes, keyboards, mice, stereos, external hard drives & storage devices, cellular phones, telephones, DVRs, VCRs, digital cameras, video recorders, MP3 players, video game consoles, wires, cables and some small appliances such as microwaves. Items NOT Accepted: Air conditioners, large appliances, vacuum cleaners, car batteries or household batteries (rechargeable batteries okay).
Disposing of electronic items in the landfill is illegal in 18 states in the US including Colorado
