Almost 10 tons of electronic equipment were collected during Watauga County’s first one-day electronics recycling even tat the end of May according to Watauga County Recycling Coordinator, Lisa Doty.

 

Watauga County residents can now recycle unwanted electronic equipment including computers, monitors, printers, televisions, fax machines and more on a regular basis.

 

Doty said residents can bring their unwanted electronic equipment to the Recycling Center at the old landfill off Highway 421 behind University Nissan.  The official address for the landfill is 336 Landfill Road in Boone.  Interested residents can bring their old equipment to the Recycling Center from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday - Friday and from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. on Saturday.

 

According to Doty, electronic recycling helps conserve natural resources by recovering valuable materials from old electronics that can be used to make new products.  As a result, we reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce pollution, save energy and resources by extracting fewer raw materials from the earth.  Safe recycling of outdated electronics also helps to protect the environment through sound management of toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury.
