Under Colorado law, residential and business electronics are banned from being disposed of in a landfill and must be recycled. Electronic devices should be kept out of landfills and properly recycled to recover materials and reduce the energy demands from mining and manufacturing. Electronics are made from valuable resources such as precious metals, copper, and engineered plastics, all of which require considerable energy to process and manufacture. Recycling electronics recovers valuable materials and as a results, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, saves energy, and saves resources by extracting fewer raw materials.
Start collecting electronic waste for the upcoming 2016 Electronic Recycling Event for Adams County residents:
1. Sat., March 26th, Adams County Fairground Regional Park, 9755 Henderson Road Brighton, CO 80601 (9:30a.m. - 2:30p.m.)
