On Saturday, January 30 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., the Irvine Unified School District will host a free electronics recycling event at the District Office, located at 5050 Barranca Parkway in Irvine.
- Miscellaneous electronic equipment (anything with a plug and circuit board)
Items not accepted include:
- Household hazardous waste
- Kitchen appliances
E-waste contains heavy metals such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium and zinc that contaminate our soil and water, and is responsible for 70 percent of all heavy metals found in landfills today. A recent report by the Environmental Protection Agency says E-waste in landfills will grow four-fold over the next five years. Help do your part to protect our environment by safely recycling your old electronics at this free public event.
