Computer Recycling 2004

Computer Recycling 2004

FAST FACT: It is estimated that 150 million computers will be discarded in the United States alone, enough to fill a hole one acre in area and 3.5 miles deep.

Have you wondered what to do with your used non-JLab electronics equipment? How about recycling it! VPPSA offer ways in which to recycle hardware in your community.

Through a partnership with ARC of the Peninsula, VPPSA will be accepting old personal computers and computer accessories from residents for recycling. Be sure to bring any paperwork or documents that originally came with the computer. For more information, call VPPSA at (757) 259-9850.

Note: This does not apply to JLab property. To dispose JLab property, please follow fill out the Excess Items Disposal/Inspection form.
