In partnership with Ojai Valley Directory, Ojai Community Bank, Gold Coast Recycling & Transfer, and PC Pros, the Ojai Valley Green Coalition will once again hold an e-waste recycling event on Saturday, January 7, 2012, in the bank’s parking lot, located at 402 W. Ojai Ave. Ojai , from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine.
The event is open to all Ojai Valley residents and businesses.

E-Recycling of California will be accepting for recycling most types of electronics, including computers, monitors, and all accessories; TVs, radios, stereo and small appliances, such as toasters and microwaves.
The Coalition will also be recycling household batteries (limit five pounds), ink and toner cartridges, CDs and DVDs with cases, cassette tapes with cases, iPods, cell phones and incandescent holiday lights.
Did you receive new electronics or small appliances as holiday gifts? It’s illegal to dispose of your old items in the trash, or in regular recycle bins. These universal wastes, as they are called, contain toxic heavy metals that can leach into the ground, so they cannot go to landfills.
The coalition also collects, CDs, DVDs, ink and toner cartridges, iPods and cell phones year round at its resource center located at 327 E. Ojai Ave.
