Andrews University to host electronic recycling event

Is your basement or garage piling up with out-dated electronics?

Andrews University will host an electronic recycling event Wednesday in the transportation building from 3-7 pm.

Greenearth electronic recycling company will co-host the event, by collecting your unwanted electronic items and disposing of them properly.

The event will take items such as computers, TV's, tools, hair dryers, cords, irons and cell phones to name a few. But sponsors say they'll accept just about anything that will plug in.

The event is community oriented, and organizers say it's more of a community service effort. Indiana and Illinois have passed laws requiring you to properly dispose of your old electronics. So this event, gives locals the chance to bring all those unwanted items to a central location. Instead of piling up in landfills where many electronics are considered "hazardous waste," this service will properly dispose of them and reuse parts if possible.
