Denver Recycles encourages residents to take advantage of this discounted opportunity to recycle electronic items, as these items are no longer accepted in the trash. It is now illegal for Colorado residents and residential waste haulers to dispose of electronics in landfills (Colorado’s Electronic Recycling Jobs Acts, SB 12-133, 4/20/12). If you’re not able to attend this event, call 311 (720-913-1311) or visit DenverGov.org/Ecycle for other electronic recycling options offered by Denver Recycles.
