STLCC-Florissant Valley to Host Second Annual Electronic Recycling Event

September 15, 2008

The City of Florissant Environmental Quality Commission and St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley will hold the second annual Electronic Recycling Event at the STLCC-Florissant Valley campus on the lower parking lot, P-17 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 11, 2008. The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson.

Electronics consist of valuable resources which require considerable energy to process and manufacture. Recycling electronics recovers valuable materials, conserves resources and results in lower environmental emission than making products from virgin materials. Many will need to dispose of televisions rendered unusable by the upcoming switch to digital broadcasting. Instead of throwing them away, community members are invited to bring electronic appliances to be recycled. Recyclable items include:

Computer Peripherals
CD, CDRW drives, CPUs, hard drives, laptops, notebooks, monitors, printers, routers, scanners, servers, zip, DVD, floppy drives.

Office Equipment
Adding machines, copiers, fax machines, multifunction machines.

Communication Equipment
Phone adapters and chargers, answering machines, cell phones, corded phones, cordless phones, pagers.

Miscellaneous
Battery back-ups, data cartridges, digital cameras, DVD/video players,
electronic game devices, pocket PCs, rechargeable batteries (no alkaline batteries), televisions, household appliances

Televisions, laptops and computer monitors can be recycled for a $10 fee.

This event is open to the public. Call 314-839-7654 for more information.
