Technology is constantly changing. With a new selection of phones, tablets, and televisions being unveiled every year, we’re often inclined to trade in perfectly functional devices for the next best thing. Other times we are forced to upgrade because something no longer works. Whatever the reason may be, the question remains, what do we do with the old ones?
Lion Surplus will be holding its fifth annual Electronic Recycling Event from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 9. Students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to drop off their used electronics at Lion Surplus on Services Road. This is a free service that will dispose of your recyclables in an environmentally safe way.
Acceptable items include CPUs, monitors, hard drives, keyboards, mice, peripherals, printers, circuit boards, laptops, DVD players, electric typewriters, fax machines, cellphones, modems, pagers, PDAs, VCRs, and word processors.
Last year, more than 4,800 pounds of electronics were collected and sent to the Creative Recycling Facility in Allentown, Pa.
For more information on Electronics Recycling Day, call 814-865-4371.
Organizers do have the right to refuse any items brought in for drop-off and items will only be accepted during the date and time mentioned above.
