Get Rid of That Broken TV in the Shed

Posted By on Fri, Jun 4, 2010 at 12:40 PM

Get rid of some old crap and help the planet: Tucson Clean and Beautiful and the Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse, et al, are teaming up to recycle your old TVs, CD players and whatnot. Details after the jump:

Date: Saturday, June 26th, 2010
Time: 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Place: 1000 S Randolph Way in the parking lot of the Therapeutic
Recreation Center

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, partnering with American
Retroworks, Cartridge World Tucson, and Emerge! Center Against Domestic
Abuse to conserve resources, create jobs 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 electronics, home entertainment equipment,
telephones and other electronic components. All working and non-working
electronics will be accepted. A pilot collection project in cooperation
with PV Recycling is also being held for solar gadgets such as the solar
lights and other small items that have solar devices in them. Please
note: large household appliances, refrigerators, and air conditioners
are NOT accepted for recycling through this program.

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). Only small
quantities from residential sources are accepted. Commercial origin or
large quantities are only accepted with prior approval and an
appointment.

“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.

Tucson Clean & Beautiful is a non- profit organization now in its 3rd
decade as the flagship for community environmental volunteer efforts in
the Tucson area. Its programs address recycling and waste reduction,
urban forestry, land stewardship, and beautification. Please call (520)
