Not Sure How to Get Rid of Your Old Electronics?

January 6, 2011 Updated Jan 6, 2011 at 4:02 PM CST

E–Waste Collection Center in Superior will be taking old electronics for free throughout the month of January.
Electronics contain hazardous materials such as lead and mercury that are dangerous to the environment when put in landfills.
In 2008 alone, over 30 million tons of E–Waste was generated in America.
Less than a quarter of that amount was recycled... sending the rest to landfills.
Shane, the owner of E-Waste, says its an easy way to help the environment.

"It's important to recycle electronics because it keeps it out of our landfills and there are a lot of hazardous material in electronics and you just bring it down here for the whole month of January and we will take it for free."

Anything with a circuit board is considered an electronic.

E–Waste will take your old TVs for only ten dollars.
