Looking for a place to safely dispose of all those old electronics? Warminster Township is sponsoring an Electronics Recycling Event Saturday, May 5th, from 9:00am to 1:00pm, at Warminster Community Park via the 350 E. Bristol Road entrance.
The event is open to the public. Simply drive up and volunteers will unload your old electronics.
The following are accepted free of charge: laptops, desktops, tablets, printers, scanners, fax machines, cell phones, keyboards, iPods, MP3 players, Fitbits, VCRs, DVD players, cords, game systems, etc. All computer drives are safely wiped clean.
The following items include a cost to ensure they are properly recycled: 19” and smaller CRT TVs/monitors are $30/each; 20” to 40” are $45/each; 41” and larger $65/each. A/C units and dehumidifiers/humidifiers are $15/each. Microwaves are $5/each.
This event benefits PAR-RecycleWorks, a non-profit organization supporting ex-offenders as they transition into the workforce. More than half of all people leaving prison or on probation are unemployed. Over 60% will be rearrested within three years after their release.
Taking the electronic waste and other recyclables provided by residents, faith-based organizations, corporate and educational partners, PAR-RecycleWorks deconstructs these items, recycles the materials and disposes of the waste safely and cleanly.
The scrap metals and other reusable materials collected in this process are then sold to help pay for salaries and job skill development for formerly incarcerated men and women to support their productive re-entry back into society.
