FORT WAYNE, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ESG–The Allen County Department of Environmental Management (ACDEM), and ERI, the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, are joining forces to offer a convenient way for residents to responsibly recycle unwanted consumer electronics.
This opportunity for local residents to dispose of their unwanted electronics in an environmentally responsible way will take place on June 24th from 9am to noon. Residents can bring up to five electronic items for five dollars to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum parking lot located at 4000 Parnell Avenue. Cash or check is the only form of payment accepted.
Televisions, cell phones, cameras, CDs, cords, DVDs, keyboards, laptops, monitors, printers, radios, VCRs, and tablets are just a few of the items accepted at the Electronics Recycling Event. Residents are limited to bringing two televisions per vehicle.
Electronics contain hazardous material and are banned from Indiana landfills. Electronics should not be placed in trash bins and will not be picked up curbside. For the past 20 years, ACDEM has helped Allen County residents properly recycle approximately 4,000 tons of electronics.
ERI, a certified e-Steward, observes all e-Stewards, R2, NAID and SOC 2 procedures and guidelines to responsibly recycle and securely destroy personal data on all electronic items.
“It is an honor to partner with our friends at ACDEM to benefit local residents,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of ERI. “The work we will be doing together on June 24th will prevent unwanted electronics from ending up in landfills, while providing a convenient way for people to de-clutter!”
