The El Dorado Fairgrounds in Placerville will offer a free e-waste drop-off from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The fairgrounds is teaming with Fresno-based Electronic Recyclers International to provide the community with an easy and free opportunity to safely unload their old computers, television sets, monitors and other out-dated, unusable or unwanted electronic items for proper recycling.

It is illegal to throw an old television or computer monitor in the trash in the state of California. Electronic items contain toxic elements such as lead and mercury that are environmentally hazardous when they are dumped into landfills. By law, such products now must be recycled properly and in ways that won’t harm the environment.
