E-cycling Event 6/27

Bring Obsolete And End-Of-Life Electronics To E-Cycling Event On June 27

Working together to keep potentially harmful obsolete and end-of-life electronics out of local landfills, an Electronics Collection Event will be held on June 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be held in the parking lot of three local Best Buy Stores at North Raleigh on Capital Blvd at Triangle Shopping Center, Durham Renaissance Center and Crossroads Shopping Center in Cary.

This one day collection event is FREE to the public and is expected to divert thousands of pounds of electronics from the local solid waste stream. You won't even have to get out of your car - volunteers will unload your electronic items! 

The collected material will be processed by Creative Recycling Systems of North Carolina. Using automated and state-of-the-art technology to responsibly handle end-of-life and surplus electronic equipment, CRS provides a true environmental solution for e-scrap.
