Electronics Recycling in Montgomery County Maryland – This Weekend!
In April 2008, the Consumer Electronics Association published a Market Research Report called: Trends in CE Reuse, Recycle and Removal which reported the average American Household has 24 electronic products per household. I don’t know about you, but as I look around my apartment, I have MANY more then 24! With that said, when it is time to recycle the items, we all must do our part to recycle the electronics.
This weekend, Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services is hosting another FREE electronics recycling event.
Sunday, July 26, 2009, 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m.
