The City of Carson is getting ready to host a free e-waste recycling event for the community on February 13, 2016 from 9am to 2pm in the city hall parking lot, 701E. Carson Street.
The event will accept all electronics waste such as computers, monitors, televisions, cell phones, smart phones, MP3 players, Ink and Toner Cartridges, Printers, microwaves, Cables and wires, and laptops.
“The City of Carson is doing its part to assist the community in disposing their unwanted electronics properly rather than having them sit in garages or having them contaminate landfills or parkways,” said Mayor Albert Robles. “This e-waste collection event is the safe environmentally sound way to get rid of unwanted electronics.”
For information on the event, you can give a call to 310-952-1740 (ext) 1150.
