Keep Virginia Beautiful and Retail Merchants Assoc. host recycling event Nov. 15

Keep Virginia Beautiful and the Retail Merchants Association will host a recycling event to celebrate America Recycles Day on Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the RMA building, 5101 Monument Ave. near Willow Lawn.

Residents and businesses can bring up to one pickup truck full of electronics. The following electronic items will be accepted: cell phones, computers and monitors, computer peripherals (keyboards, mouse, speakers, etc.), DVD players, alarm clocks, fax machines, home and office phones, printers, stereos, televisions and VCRs. Items that cannot be accepted include: any unit with sludge or liquids, dehumidifiers, household hazardous waste, large appliances (refrigerators, stoves, washer dryers, etc.), microwaves, non-decontaminated medical equipment, smoke alarms and detectors.

Residents can also bring aluminum and steel cans, cardboard, paper, plastic and glass bottles, glass jars and plastic bags to have recycled. Participants who bring in ten used plastic bags for recycling will receive a reusable bag (one per person, while supplies last).

In addition, KVB and RMA will offer document shredding.

The recycling events are supported by Waste Management, LG Electronics USA (LG), Keep America Beautiful, TFC Recycling, Central Virginia Waste Management Authority (CVWMA), Gone 4 Good Shred, Virginia Recycling Association and Trex. Waste Management will transport the electronics to one of their U.S. regional recycling centers and break the product down into saleable commodities such as plastics, metals and glass. Downstream vendors will further process the commodities into reusable forms and new products will be made from the recovered materials. LG Electronics hopes to incorporate some of those recovered materials back into its own products.
