Free electronic waste disposal event coming to South Tahoe
August 13, 2014
Californians needing to dispose of electronic waste will have a chance to do so free of charge at South Lake Tahoe Middle School this weekend.
Non-Californians will have to pay a nominal recycling fee for each cathode ray tube display they turn in, such as TVs and monitors. But all other e-waste will be free to drop off.
Electronic Waste Management, a state-approved e-waste collector, is the organization behind the free disposal and recycling event.
Any California business, school, government agency, organization or resident is welcome to bring their unwanted e-waste to the school to dispose of it. Staff will be on site Aug. 16 and 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
E-waste accepted at the event will be TVs, computers, monitors, computer components, power supplies, telephone equipment, scrap metal, wire and much more.
Household appliances, smoke detectors, furniture or household or car batteries will not be accepted.
