Recycle e-waste this weekend

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Get your electronic waste ready. The second monthly Electronic Waste and TV Recycling Event will be held at the Los Alamos County Eco Station Saturday, 10 a.m. 2 p.m.

Just like last month, staff from Albuquerque Recycling Inc. will be on hand, along with volunteers and environmental services staff, who will all work to collect and pack trucks with recycled materials.

The Eco Station Officially opened for business last month after the Environmental Department came and did a permit inspection. Eco Station staff endured training on identifying unacceptable waste like hazardous liquid and waste in order to ready themselves for the inspection.

In addition, they received training on procedures and what to do in an emergency, in case of a fire or a spill and what to do in an evacuation situation.

“The told the Environmental Department that they were ready for the final permit inspection,” Environmental Services Manager Regina Wheeler said. “They did the inspection … and they passed with flying colors.”

Though the Eco Station has only officially been open for a month, staff accepted e-waste at the facility last month, as well.
