Make a Difference by Recycling Unwanted Electronics
Submitted By Rhonda Rigenhagen
One of the many events taking place in Fremont during Saturday's Make A Difference Day on October 27 is the opportunity to recycle obsolete, broken or unwanted electronics for free. Fremont residents can drop off e-waste from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Allied Waste Services, 42600 Boyce Road (at the east end of Auto Mall Parkway, turn right onto Boyce).
Allied will take computer systems (PC, monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, scanner, hard drive, etc.), televisions, telephones, DVD/VCR players, stereos, microwaves, answering machines, and cell phones. California prohibits these items in solid waste landfills. There is a $10 charge for more than eight items (computer systems count as one).
Participants will need to provide a photo ID showing proof of Fremont residency.
Do not bring small electronic appliances such as irons, hair dryers, toaster ovens, space heaters, boom boxes or battery-operated portable radio/tape/CD players, blenders, food processors, or camcorders. This is an e-waste event only. Fluorescent tubes and batteries need to be brought in during normal collection hours, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
