Got electronic junk? E-cycle it!
Here's the press release:
EPA and Dell Inc. will join together to encourage greater-Washington, D.C. area residents and businesses to recycle unwanted computer equipment and cell phones at the 3rd annual EPA eCycling Event on Saturday, April 18 at the National Harbor in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The eCycling event will be held at the Plateau from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Area residents can bring any make or model computer and related equipment, including monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards, and mice, and EPA will recycle it for free in an environmentally safe manner.
