May 2, 2005 - Benefit local charities and
Plug-In to Your Community by Recycling Computers and equipment.
May 14th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This eCycle event is a one day event that collects old computers,
parts, peripherals, TVs and a few other electronic items. All of these
items have heavy metal and should not be disposed of with your regular
garbage. This event provides the community with the opportunity to
properly recycle and donate these items. Non-working components are
recycled and working items are given a second life. There will be
a small fee for computers and other electronics that are dropped off
to be recycled.
There will be two locations:
West drop-off at Farragut High School, 11237 Kingston Pike
East Drop-off at Comcast Communications, 5720 Ashville Highway
All proceeds from this event will benefit The Optimist Club of West
Knoxville, Habitat for Humanity, Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley
and Goodwill Industries. Recycling old electronic equipment keeps
hazardous materials out of waste and makes it possible to recover
