Electronics Recycle Drive

Here are some photos from our E-Recycle Drive in front of Proximity Hotel on December 30, 2008. We collected 93,876 pounds (47 tons) of electronic waste. More than 1,500 people brought old computers, digital cameras, televisions, electronic games, cell phones and other home electronic waste.This one-day event with the City of Greensboro provided residents of Greensboro and Guilford County with a safe, free and environmentally-sound recycling option for electronic materials. Old electronics, like computers, monitors, CPUs, fax machines, televisions, radios, copy machines, printers, and cell phones, may pose a hazard when disposed of improperly or taken to the landfill. These items contain toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury that can contaminate the environment, including water supplies. All of the electronics collected will be recycled and the computer hard drives will be erased. Read the News & Record feature. Watch the FOX 8 Video.

If you live in Guilford County, you can take electronic waste to a permanent facility operated by the City of Greensboro. Read more. If you live outside our county, check with your city or county for options in your area.
