Recycle Your eWaste

February 1, 2008

WTVM (Columbus, GA) --

Lanett and Valley, Alabama are encouraging residents to recycle their old electronics instead of throwing them away. City officials have teamed up with Electronic Recycling Services of Atlanta, to offer a free recycling program aimed at keeping the often hazardous electronic material out of area landfills.

The collection bin is currently in the city of Lanett. Interested members of the community are encouraged to drop off computers, microwaves and phones in the parking lot located across from the Langdale Mill on 20th Avenue. Collections are welcome until Sunday night.

Before you go, collections officials say you should protect yourself and make sure to erase any private information from hard drives or serial tags.
