Electronic Recycling @ Cap Hill
Saturday, January 4th
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Capitol Hill , Free

 

E-waste is a growing problem in our communities because electronics contain dangerous toxins and are rarely disposed of sustainably

New legislation was recently passed that will ban residents of Colorado from disposing of electronics in landfills.

Do you part to support this law and create change by recycling all of your electronics with ethical recyclers like SustainAbility.

We are recognized by the EPA and the State of Colorado as a large quantity electronics recycler.

Join us a the Capitol Hill Whole Foods Market from 10a.m. - 2p.m. on the first Saturday of every month where we will be collecting electronics to be recycled. 

All items with a cord will be taken!  Most items are free but there is a scale from $3-$8 for items with a screen depending on size.  We will NOT be taking refrigerators, air conditioners, light bulbs, oil or gasoline.
