Where Does My E-waste Go After I Recycle It At the Saturday, January 9th Collection Event?
Most of us take for granted some or all of our home collection of a computer, monitor, printer, television, stereo, DVD player, VCR, cell phone and small kitchen appliances. Have you ever wondered what happens to all that e-waste when it is discarded? Well, it takes a village to recycle all that e-waste, and the Ojai Valley is lucky enough to have many environmental partners in our “village.” For eight years the Coalition has partnered with E. J. Harrison & Sons and Gold Coast Recycling & Transfer Station in Ventura. They assist us financially (the City of Ojai is also helping fund the 2016 event), and they furnish the manpower and wherewithal to collect and recycle tons of materials at our annual E-waste Event. Our partners at Ojai Community Bank and Ojai Valley Directory help us with the local logistics and marketing.
