Tracy, Calif. - The City of Tracy is hosting a FREE E-Waste collection event on Saturday, January 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Boyd Service Center located at 520 Tracy Blvd., Gate #1.

The following items will be accepted at the FREE E-Waste Events:

            • Electronics (TVs, monitors, computers, printers, VCRs,

telephones, answering
              machines, small countertop microwaves)

Individuals with more than 20 electronic devices must call 209-234-7994 in advance to make arrangements with Onsite Electronics Recycling for bulk collection.

These one-day drop-off events aim to increase public awareness of recycling while decreasing the amount of recyclables sent to our landfills.  For example, Styrofoam, technically called expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) and now accepted in your curbside recycling toter, can be recycled into a variety of sustainable green building products, including decorative molding and other non-structural wood-alternatives.
