NEW JERSEY – The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be conducting its next Computer & Electronics Recycling Collection Event on Friday, May 6th and Saturday, May 7th, 2016 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).

Almost all types of computer and electronic equipment will be accepted at this 2-day event, including monitors, hard drives, printers, keyboards, modems, copier and fax machines, televisions, radios, VCRs and stereo systems, CD players, DVD players, cell phones and old telephone systems, according to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager. The County’s program also accepts used inkjet and laser toner cartridges, unwanted VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, CD-ROMS, video games, computer games, and floppy disks.

“Passaic County residents and businesses continue to show their support for recycling these items into other useful products, which keeps them out of our diminishing landfill space, and prohibits a variety of toxins, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium from entering our groundwater. Residents and businesses also need to be aware that it’s the law in New Jersey,” Seiden said. “TVs and computer equipment cannot be thrown away in the regular garbage. It must be recycled.”

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.
