There was a steady flow of people dropping off old televisions, computers, cell phones and other electronic waste at this year's event. They also delivered used motor oil, gasoline, and other hazardous waste for disposal.
Bobbi Waters, the Solid Waste Planner and Community Outreach Coordinator for the Coastal Environmental Partnership (CEP), said, "It has been the largest electronics collection year since we began this annual event."
Cindy Seymour, the Leader of the Green Team and a Biology Instructor at Craven Community College, was there to lend her support along with her students.
The CEP contracted with the American Greenz Company to collect the electronics to recycle. Cleanharbors was hired to collect the household hazardous waste.
The Coastal Environmental Partnership has a special dropoff location for e-waste at the Tuscarora landfill in Cove City. To find out how you can dispose of your household hazardous waste or electronics, you can reach them at 252-633-1564, visit their website or check out their blog.
If you live in a different part of the state and need information on how to dispose of household electronics or hazardous waste, try searching Earth911.org or contact your city or county solid waste manager.
You can also find information about waste management by visiting the North Carolina Division of Waste Management's website.
