Empty your closets, basements, and storage spaces of all your old and broken electronic devices and bring them over to the ACME parking lot at 10th and Reed Streets on Saturday, November 16 from 10am-2pm. We have partnered with eForce Compliance, Philadelphia’s only R2 certified e-waste recycler, to give you another opportunity to responsibly recycle obsolete electronics. All you have to do is drop off your e-waste items and eForce Compliance will do the rest!
Residents are encouraged to bring “anything with a plug.” All household electronics including computers, printers, microwaves, air-conditioners, metals and small appliances will be accepted. Please visit www.eforcecompliance.com for more information on accepted items. (NO SMOKE DETECTORS OR LARGE APPLIANCES will be accepted)
This is a super convenient way to dispose of your old and broken electronics that can no longer be left out on the curb for trash pickup. That’s right, the Covered Device Recycling Act now makes it illegal to dispose many electronic devices in state landfills. This includes desktop and laptop computers, monitors, peripherals such as printers, keyboards and mouses, tablets like iPads and Kindles, and televisions with viewable screens larger than four inches.
If you miss our event, eWaste must be taken to a city sanitation center and cannot be left at the curb. For locations visit http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/san-convenience-centers.aspx
By attending our event, not only are you clearing the clutter out of your storage spaces, you are taking part in an effort to spread awareness and help protect our environment. Please contact Carmela at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
