April 18th, 2011 · No Comments

Bring your old electronic equipment to the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N. in the lower parking lot, on Saturday for an E-Cycling event conducted by InterConnection.

Laptops only will be accepted from 1:30-2 p.m.; all electronics accepted from 2-4:30 p.m.

Bring your old desktops, laptops, monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, cables and other peripherals, and cell phones to recycle for free. Printers and scanners will also be collected for a fee of $5, plus $0.35 per pound for printers over 15 lbs. Equipment can be working or not, old or new.

InterConnection, a local non-profit, will refurbish usable items to donate to non-profits at home and abroad, providing job training to people in Seattle in the process. Items that cannot be refurbished are recycled through environmentally and socially responsible means. To learn more visit www.interconnection.org

InterConnection clears all data from electronics, but “wipe discs” will be available at the PNA for added privacy.
