Re­cy­cle E-waste Satur­day At Ka­neohe Bay Shop­ping Cen­ter

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

As tech­nol­ogy de­vel­ops and im­proves, the safe dis­posal of e-waste has be­come more im­por­tant — which is why res­i­dents can bring their un­wanted elec­tron­ics to Ka­neohe Bay Shop­ping Cen­ter from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Satur­day for free, se­cure de­struc­tion and re­cy­cling.

Ac­cept­able items in­clude com­put­ers, routers, mon­i­tors, lap­tops, tele­phones, DVD play­ers, key­boards, cam­eras, cal­cu­la­tors, cords and ca­bles, prin­ters and more. There are no quan­tity lim­its, but TV sets, bat­ter­ies and home ap­pli­ances will not be ac­cepted.

The public also can bring sen­si­tive doc­u­ments for shred­ding — no more than three boxes per per­son.

Im­prop­erly dis­carded ewaste can be danger­ous, as the met­als and chem­i­cals in­side the de­vices are toxic to both hu­mans and the en­vi­ron­ment.
