E-Waste Recycling: Upcoming Events in Southern California


As you probably already know, electronic devices (everything from old laptops and monitors, to stereo systems and TVs) can not and should not be dumped in the local landfill.  There are several sites around Southern California that allow for dropoff of e-waste, but usually there's a charge.  Here are a few links for free and easy dropoff events coming up around Southern California.  Mark your calendar and gather up your electronic waste items!
