Tucson Clean and Beautiful’s Electronic Recycling event

Saturday, February 26 at 8 am (PT)

Don’t know what to do with your broken television set sitting in the carport? Want to recycle it properly and safely? Tucson Clean & Beautiful is hosting an electronics collection event in partnership with American Retroworks, Bookmans, Cartridge World Tucson, Emerge! Center Against  Domestic Abuse, The Fairfax Companies LLC, and Sony, to conserve resources and improve our environment.

This recycling collection event will accept televisions,  computers, monitors, printers and other peripheral items, printer cartridges, cell phones and other small household electronics (i.e., fans, mixers, toasters, vacuums), home entertainment equipment, telephones and other electronic components.  All working and non-working electronics will be accepted.

Only small quantities from residential sources are accepted. Commercial origin or large quantities are only accepted with prior approval and an appointment. Note: this program does NOT accept large appliances, refrigerators or air conditioners for recycling.

“SONY is providing TV-recycling coupons at this event to pay for the cost of recycling old Sony televisions to further encourage recycling. Electronic waste collected at this event will be properly de-manufactured and used to help develop markets for electronic waste recycling in North America,” according to Douglas Smith of Sony.

The first 100 families to recycle electronics will receive a $5 Bookmans gift card.

Cost:
Recycling fees apply for selected items, including $10 per television (whether working or non-working); and $5 for computer monitors without a computer tower (no fee to recycle computer monitors with a tower; and no fee for other computer components and small electronics).
