A chance to unload those used computers: Nov. 3 event

If you have a growing collection of used computers and peripherals sitting around your house, MainCor has an event for you this weekend. Here are the details:

The fastest growing type of trash in the United States is electronic waste: computers, TVs and other consumer electronics. Cathode tubes found in most computer monitors and televisions contain significant amounts of lead while other equipment may contain mercury, cadmium, chromium and other heavy metals. When electronic devices are land filled, these pollutants may pose environmental risks.

Safely dispose of your unwanted electronic items at the Midtown & Southtown E-Waste Collection Event!

With new, reduced pricing & tax-deductible items:

CRT (Big Tube) TVs – $15

CRT Computer Monitors – $10

Large Printers – $5

Everything else considered a donation to a 501(C) 3 nonprofit organization.

What are you paying for? 

The electronics are transported to Midwest Electronics Recovery in Iowa for safe destruction and recycling. Costs cover shipping, labor, insurance and proper disposal. No materials are sent overseas.  Recycling electronics saves landfill space and protects our environment.

When: Saturday, Nov. 3, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Where: In the UMKC parking lot of south of 51st and Oak (west of the UMKC admissions office)

This is an e-Stewards Recycling event. In partnership with MainCor, Southtown Council, The Surplus Exchange, Bledsoe’s Rentals, Pizza 51, and the University of Missouri, Kansas City.
