La Mesa Chamber to collect e-waste this weekend

The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce will host an e-waste recycling collection from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12, at the Grossmont Center mall, 5500 Grossmont Center Dr., La Mesa, in the parking lot between CHUZE Fitness and the Fuddruckers restaurant. The event is a free service to properly dispose of electronic waste (e-waste), including computer monitors, televisions, PC systems, printers, copiers, facsimile machines and home entertainment systems that have reached their useful end, whether in working condition or not. Chamber officials said the event will help reduce improper and illegal dumping in landfills, and protect the plant from various toxicities from reaching our soil and environment.
