When new technology arrives it's time to start thinking about what to do with yesterday's PC, laptop, television, monitor or cell phone.
Instead of throwing these electronics in the landfill, you can e-cycle them.
McClain Insurance Services of Everett and E-Waste, a local electronics recycler, have partnered to provide a free electronics recycling event.
The public is invited to drop off outdated electronics from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 14 at the McClain Insurance office, 10410 19th Ave. SE, Everett. Electronic devices such as desktop computers, laptops, TVs, computer monitors and cell phones can be recycled for free.
Items such as printers, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, small microwaves and various other household electronics that are not covered under the Washington state electronics recycling program will be accepted for a $5 fee.
E-Waste has a record of recycling 99 percent of all the electronics it receives while meeting environmental and safety laws and regulations since it began operations in 2006. E-Waste is the only R2-certified electronics recycler in Snohomish County, and E-Waste does not export end-of-life electronics to undeveloped countries, according to a press release.
