Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex will be holding an Electronic Waste and Small Appliance Recycling event in Amherstburg at Wesley United Church on Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

You can drop off your unwanted, outdated and obsolete electronics and small appliances such as computers, laptops, monitors, keyboards, copiers, VCRs, DVD players, printer/fax machines, phones, cell phones, pagers, radios, televisions, stereos, microwaves, toasters, can openers, and toaster/convection ovens.

Organizers 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.

“We are really pleased to be holding an e-waste day in the county” says Rick Young, ReStore Manager, HFHWE. “We have had many requests from county residents to hold e-waste days outside of the city limits” Young adds.

Wesley United Church is located at 365 Sandwich Street South in Amherstburg.
