Electronics Recycling July 13

The Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension Service and Reboot Charity will hold an electronics recycling event on Saturday, July 13. Residents are encouraged to gather old electronics and donate them for recycling.

Currently, less than 15 percent of old electronics are recycled or repurposed, while the rest ends up in landfills, making electronic waste one of the fastest-growing environmental problems. Reboot Charity encourages the proper recycling of electronic equipment, including cell phones, computers and office equipment, by accepting donations and then overseeing their recycling and/or resale and redistribution.

Proceeds from the recycling event will be used to support the work of volunteer educators who have suffered financial setbacks such as loss of employment, homelessness and severe health issues or disabilities.

The event will take place Saturday, July 13, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension Office, 559 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach. For more information, contact Wil Reyes of Reboot Charity at (561) 800-3968 or wil@rebootcharity.org.
