California State University, Fresno’s electronic waste (e-waste) recycling program will accept e-waste materials from the community from 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25.
The collection will be held in the parking lot north of the Save Mart Center (Shaw and Chestnut avenues) at Fresno State.
Central California residents are invited to bring their old TVs, PC components, cell phones and other unwanted electronic products. It is against state law to dispose of these materials in regular trash bins.
TVs and computer monitors will be accepted without charge while all other electronic waste will be subject to a fee of 25 cents per pound. Drop-offs may not be left in the lot unless an attendant is present. E-waste loads greater than 500 pounds require prior notification and approval.
Fresno State’s new e-waste collection program for Central California residents is in conjunction with Electronic Recyclers of America.
For questions, 559.278.7422. For details about e-waste items that will be accepted and any applicable fees, see:
