Tech Groups Hosts E-Waste Drive

River Valley residents will be able to safely recycle electronic equipment this week during a drive hosted by two Arkansas Tech student organizations. Enactus and the Computer Club will host an e-waste recycling drive on Thursday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Pope County Fairgrounds. The goal of the drive is to assist community members in the safe disposal of old and unused electronic items, and those dropping of items should enter the fairgrounds near the Fairway Boulevard entrance. The following items will be collected for safe disposal:
  • Computers
  • Printers, Scanners
  • Digital Cameras
  • Stereos, A/V Equipment
  • Cell Phones, Telephones
  • VCRs, DVD, CD Players
Over the past few years of hosting the event, River Valley residents have safely disposed of several tons of electronic waste.
