The Great Minnesota FREE e-Cycling Event

15 November 2007

If you’re looking for a great way to celebrate America Recycles Day and get a jump start on your pledge to recycle, look no further than the Great Minnesota Free e-Cycling Event (presented by Materials Processing Corporation (MPC))!

What? Why?

Old electronics can cause huge problems for the earth – and the people needing to get rid of them. You can’t leave them in the street and you can’t throw them out in the trash, so what can you do when you have an old computer, television or small electronic device hanging around with no relief in site? Take it to the e-Cycling event! Not only will you be able to recycle your old electronic junk for free, you’ll walk away with goodies: a Mall of America Mystery Park Pass, a Special Guest Star Program pass with 200 discounts throughout the Mall and other free coupons.

Where?

The Great Minnesota e-Cycling Event will be held at the Mall of America Met Lot just north of the Mall, near Ikea. Just pull into one of the many drop off lanes and special staff will unload your electronics, give your your goodies and get you quickly on your way!

When?

Today, Thursday, November 15, 6 a.m. – 7 p.m., Friday, November 16, 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday, November 17, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

What you CAN bring (all consumer or residential electronics, such as):

Computers, monitors, hard drives, keyboards, tv’s, VCRs/DVD players, phones, cell phones, cables, adaptors, etc., steroes, small appliances (microwaves, toasters, etc.).

What you CANNOT bring:

Large appliances (stoves, dishwashers, etc.), anything with liquid material (such as refrigerators), fluorescent bulbs.

    Deb: The event did occur in 2007, but if you have ewaste that you want to recycle, you have some options now. In particular, I would suggest that you look up your local household hazardous waste site and see what kind of disposal options they offer. Best of luck!
