Hayden – The Town of Hayden, ASARCO, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and Western Recyclers are sponsoring a free E-Waste Recycling event.

This event is great for those with unwanted TVs, computers, monitors, printers, batteries, chargers, cell phones, VCRs, CD and DVD players, fax machines, small appliances, cables and cords.

Saturday, Feb. 9 from 8 a.m. to noon is the time to empty your home of all your obsolete electronics and drive them over for free disposal at Hayden Town Hall, 520 North Velasco Avenue.

The proposal disposal of electronic waste is a worldwide problem. Much is exported to foreign countries where, without proper control, the pieces are stripped of their valuable materials and dumped.

This exposes low grade components, which contain lead and other toxic materials, creating unsafe work conditions for the employees who handle materials as well as wreak havoc on environments.

These pollutants can also affect areas where food may be grown and imported into the United States.

With proper handling by licensed companies that have to follow correct control procedures, the toxic materials can be prevented from causing problems while the valuable materials, such as gold and plastic, can be re-purposed.

By attending this event, not only are you clearing away unwanted clutter, but, you are taking a stand for the environment, local and global. For more information about the items accepted at the event, call 520-356-7801
