FREE E-Cycling Earth Days Event in Berkeley, CA

by arlene on April 20, 2011

All residents of the Berkeley, CA area are invited to bring their lifeless laptops, sick cellphones, tired TVs and moribund monitors to the Berkeley Association of REALTORS® this Thursday from 1 – 4 pm or Friday from 10 –noon and their electronics will be recycled for FREE. This is the annual Earth Day tribute I organize on behalf of the GREEN Council of the Berkeley Association of REALTORS®.  Last year we filled the conference room with old equipment—help us do the same this year!

E-Cycling at Berkeley Assoc. of REALTORS

The office is conveniently located at the corner of MLK and Cedar Streets in Berkeley (1553 MLK Jr. Way for those with GPS!). Please, no major appliances. As an added bonus, all donors will receive a reusable lunch bag filled with Green Goodies and tips on saving energy. It includes a CFL, bio bag, outlet gaskets, as well as information about how to recycle CFLs. It’s our way of saying Thank You for e-cycling with us on Earth Day!

The good folks from the Alameda County Computer Resource Center will attempt to fix your equipment and then give it away to someone who is unable to afford to buy a computer. If they are unable to reuse your equipment, it will be recycled in an environmentally friendly manner. They give free refurbished computers to schools, non-profit organizations, and economically and/or physically disadvantaged individuals. So your lifeless laptop may be brought back to life–and at least it will be kept out of the land fill!
