Rentals is teaming up with local nonprofit Capital Roots for their 5th
annual Electronic Waste Collection event in the Capital Region. This event
provides residents and the entire Capital Region the opportunity to recycle
electronic waste free of charge and close to home. Residents and the public can
rest easy knowing that any personal data on hard drives or similar data storage
devices will be safely destroyed and that community landfills will be saved
from the release of non-biodegradable and potentially hazardous materials. For
every 10 pounds e-waste recycled throughout the event, Tri City Rentals will
donate $1 to Capital Roots. Last year, Tri City Rentals recycled more than
45,000 pounds of e-waste.
January 1, 2015, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
issued an e-waste disposal ban on individuals and households as part of the
Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act signed into law in 2010. This ban
makes it illegal for individuals and households to dispose of certain types of
electronic equipment in landfills, the trash, waste-to-energy facilities, and
curbside trash pickup. This free recycling event gives residents an opportunity
to easily comply with the law.
accepted at the event include computer towers, laptops, servers, monitors,
keyboards, mice, speakers, cords, printers, projectors, fax machines,
microwaves, cellphones, pagers, televisions, desktop copiers, VCRs, DVD
players, stereos, turntables, clock radios, cameras, camera chargers, routers,
switches, hubs, telephones, and video gaming systems.
