The Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors will host a free e-waste recycling collection from 1 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, at the PSAR East County Service Center, 1150 Broadway, El Cajon. The event is open to the public to properly dispose of electronic waste (e-waste), including TVs, PC systems, laptops, printers, toner cartridges, hard drives, monitors, keyboards, mice, PDAs, networking equipment, mother board systems, landline and cellular phones, power supplies, copies, scanners, fax machines, stereos, home entertainment systems and VCR, VCD and DVD players. Items not accepted include kitchen appliances, light bulbs or batteries. PSAR officials said the recycling event will help reduce improper and illegal dumping in landfills, and protect the plant from various toxicities from reaching our soil and environment.
