Recycle San Diego and Horizon Christian Fellowship North County have aligned to benefit the church’s ministry by hosting an eWaste Recycling Event on Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the church’s parking lot at 6365 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe.
Jeffrey Harding, the founder and president of Recycle San Diego, says “It is always gratifying to partner with a not-for-profit institution like Horizon Christian Fellowship, whose mission and programs benefit from a portion of the proceeds. We are happy to provide our recycling expertise and coordinate this eWaste Event that will divert lead, mercury, and other toxic chemicals from our local landfill.”
Items that can be recycled include: computers, monitors, TVs, laptops, cables, printers, fax machines, scanners, DVD players, VCRs, and other electronic items.
Recycle San Diego wishes to remind the public that it is illegal to dispose of e-Waste in the trash and California requires that companies recycle their e-Waste. California currently has the most comprehensive landfill ban in the nation, curbing both the illegal disposal and export of the largest category of toxic electronics which includes CRT TVs and computer monitors.
