If you have any personal electronics you want to recycle, Scripps is hosting a recycling drive tomorrow:

Electronic waste or “E-waste” is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste stream. Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals that can be recovered for recycling. Some electronic devices contain high levels of certain materials, such as lead, that render them hazardous waste when disposed. Recycling your e-waste will divert hazardous materials from landfills, conserve natural resources, and reduce pollution.

When: Wednesday, April 21st from 8:00am to 1:00pm

Where: CimBio (Carr B), 3215 Merryfield Row, San Diego, CA 92121

What: Personal home office electronic waste including computer devices (terminals, monitors, keyboards, wires, etc.), laptops (batteries included), scanners, printers, fax machines, radios and stereo equipment, VCR’s and DVD players, TV’s, and cellphones (batteries included).

For those unfamiliar with the location of the Carr B building it can be found in the lower right hand corner of the TSRI campus map and
is labeled “Center for Integrative Molecular Biosciences”.
