Zion United Methodist Church in Whitehouse will host an Electronics Recycling Day on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the church parking lot, 10926 Maumee Street. The event is free and open to the public. All are invited to come and dispose of their unwanted electronic devices in an ecologically responsible way. More information, including a complete list of eligible items, can be found on the Zion web site: www.zionumcwhitehouse.org.
Among the devices that can be disposed of are computers, servers, monitors, displays, networking hardware, cell phones and PDAs, stereo equipment, printers, scanners, projectors, speakers, memory, cameras and camcorders, keyboards and mice, video game consoles, storage devices, and flash drives. (Unfortunately, CRT Televisions, CRT Monitors, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, light bulbs, or house hold appliances cannot be accepted.)
Recycle IT USA Toledo will collect the devices and deliver them to their sorting station. The components will be disassembled, with care being taken to destroy any data on the devices.
After the data is rendered completely unreadable, the metals, plastics and other materials are sorted. Electronic devices contain mercury, lead and other harmful materials that can poison the soil, water and air if burned or buried in a landfill. Recycle IT strives to be a zero-landfill company and avoid incineration.
