Getting rid of old electronics in a safe, responsible manner just got easier. The first monthly Electronic Waste and TV Recycling Event will be held at the Los Alamos County Eco Station Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Staff from Albuquerque Recycling Inc. will be on hand, along with staff from the environmental services department and local Boy Scout volunteers, who will all work to collect and pack trucks with recycled materials.
Previously, the county held annual e-recycling events at Sullivan Field, but in an effort to capture more electronics for recycling, Environmental Services Manager Regina Wheeler and her staff decided to hold monthly events at the Eco Station.
Because of the large volume of recycled materials that would be collected at the annual event, lines for dropping off recyclable materials were often long.
“Holding monthly events is much more convenient for them. We used to get 20 tons of materials at the annual events,” Wheeler said.
Albuquerque Recycling is a family owned business that collects e-waste and e-scrap. Gary and Janet Estepp, along with their son Mullen, collect and sell the materials.
“We take all kinds of electronic scraps, computers, printers, copiers, fax machines, cell phones and TVs,” Janet Estepp said.
