Time to unload that e-waste?

ewaste_2015x-1You know that clunky old computer in the basement? How about that heavy 36-inch TV that was long ago replaced by a flat screen and that you couldn’t unload for 50 cents at last year’s garage sale?

The E-Waste Collection Day—co-sponsored by Ann Arbor Public Schools and the University of Michigan—is just what you’ve been waiting for. Held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 25 in the Pioneer High School parking lot, the free event is a way to quickly and easily get rid of electronic equipment that has reached the end of its useful life.

U-M will take those clunkers off your hands and dispose of them in an environmentally friendly manner.

The district is happy to offer the Pioneer High School parking lot for this community-wide service, said Ann Judge, who is coordinating the event for AAPS. “It’s a popular event that helps the environment, and we’re happy to partner with U-M to make it happen,” said Judge. Complete details, including a list of accepted materials, are here.
