Computer & Electronics Recycling Events

NEW JERSEY – The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs has announced the following remaining dates for its’ 2015 Computer & Electronics Recycling Collection

Program: Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24, 2015. All events will be held from 9 am to 2 pm, rain or shine at the Passaic County Para-Transit Facility, 1310 Route 23 North in Wayne (behind Ski Barn).

According to Nina Seiden, Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager, almost all types of computer and electronic equipment will be accepted, including monitors, hard drives, printers, keyboards, modems, copier and fax machines, televisions, radios, VCRs and stereo systems, as well as CD players, DVD players, cell phones and old telephone systems. The program also accepts used inkjet and laser toner cartridges, unwanted VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, CD-ROMS, video games, computer games, and floppy disks.

“By participating in this event, Passaic County residents and businesses will show their support for recycling these items into other useful products, keeping them out of our diminishing landfill space, and prohibiting a variety of toxins, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium from entering our groundwater. “It’s also the law in New Jersey,” Seiden said. “TVs and computer equipment can no longer be thrown away in the regular garbage.”

The event is free for residents. Businesses must pre-register. For further information, please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738. Recycling services provided by Advanced Recovery of Newark, N.J. and Port Jervis, N.Y.
