Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex will be holding two simultaneous Electronic Waste and Small Appliance Recycling events this Saturday.

Residents of Windsor-Essex County are invited and encouraged to support this effort by bringing their unwanted, outdated and obsolete electronics and small appliances to either of The Home Depot locations in Windsor from 10am to 3pm.

Residents can recycle devices such as computers and peripherals, laptops, monitors, keyboards, copiers, VCRs, DVD players, printer/fax machines, phones, cell phones, pagers, radios, televisions, microwaves, toasters, can openers, toaster/convection ovens.

Organizers of the event say that unwanted electronics and appliances should never end up in landfills. Most of the steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals in electronic products can be removed and made into new products. Many computers, printers and televisions can be reused, further cutting down on waste.
