Verizon has planned its fourth annual
Recycling Rally and will collected unwanted electronics at its Ashburn campus
from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 26.
The rally is free and open to the public. Verizon has a zero-landfill commitment, meaning the items turned over will be reused or recycled in some manner and not end up in a dump. Verizon employees collected nearly 80,000 pounds of waste during the company’s first three events.
Accepted items can include glass, plastics and aluminum cans; laptop and desktop computers; CRT (cathode ray tube) and LCD (liquid crystal display) monitors and televisions; computer cables, mice and keyboards; gaming consoles; telephones and answering machines; stereo and audio equipment; paper shredders; alarm clocks; printers; cameras; conferencing equipment; remote controls; earphones; small electronic appliances (such as coffee makers, toasters, toaster ovens and can openers); microwave ovens; vacuum cleaners; and electronic toys without batteries.
Hard drives will not be wiped, and all batteries should be removed prior to turning in any items.
Items that will NOT be accepted include hazardous waste, including batteries, inks/toners, mercury bulbs; units containing fluid, such as motors and pumps containing fluid; refrigerators and freezers; medical waste, and radioactive material such as X-ray equipment.
Participants will also receive token giveaways.
WHEN: Thursday, Sept. 26, 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
