Electronic Recycling This Friday and Saturday

It's happening again... Something I think Intel started doing in the Rio Rancho area is expanding a bit to include us here in Albuquerque.

From the New Mexico Business Weekly:
Free electronic recycling events scheduled for Aug. 22, 23

The City of Albuquerque is teaming up with Intel Corp.; KOAT-TV, Channel 7; Bernalillo County; and Natural Evolution to host free electronic recycling events for residents and small businesses.

This is the third time the partners have offered e-waste recycling drives. Last April, the event collected more than 500,000 pounds of old computers, printers, phones and home electronics.

Businesses can drop off their e-waste on Aug. 22, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and residents on Aug. 23, also from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pick up service can be arranged between Aug. 18 and 21 for businesses that have 125 or more units for recycling.

Items accepted for recycling include computer monitors, all office-related equipment, consumer electronics, telephones and cell phones, cameras and stereo equipment. Televisions and home appliances will not be accepted.

Drop off is at a parking lot south of Balloon Fiesta Park (from Alameda, head north on San Mateo to San Diego Street and continue west to the north side parking lot).

For more information, call the city help line at 311 or visit www.cabq.gov/solidwaste.
