KUSA — Do you have a bunch of old electronics that you’ve been meaning to get rid of? Bring them to the 9NEWS E-Cycle on Saturday, October 27.
To help recycle electronics properly, 9NEWS has once again partnered with Techno Rescue to host the event in Parking Lot H at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City from 7 a.m. until noon.
By recycling your electronics, you’re helping save energy, reduce pollution and conserve resources.
There are a lot of items that can be recycled: TVs, computers, VCRs, stereos, printers, fax machines, cell phones, microwaves, small appliances and more. All data, media and storage will be wiped and physically destroyed to protect your identity.
While most items are free to recycle, there are fees for particular items.
Items with fees:
- LCD monitors: $5
- CRT monitors: $20
- CRT TVs: $40
- Console, projection and DLP TVs: $70
Techno Rescue will accept cash, credit/debit cards and checks at the event to pay these fees, but they prefer cash to help the line move quickly.
There are also items you CANNOT recycle:
- Exposed or Broken CRT’s Tubes
- Alkaline Batteries
