Real Estate Agent with Wende Schoof 01198641

Redwood City Public Communications Manager Malcolm Smith has also announced a free e-waste clean up event benefitting Redwood City's Fair Oaks Branch Library this Saturday and Sunday, October 9th and 10th, 9-4 pm at the Fair Oaks Library parking lot, 2600 Middlefield Road.

Just drive in and drop off your old electronics, working or not, for free!  And know you're helping in 2 ways:

1. You're helping keep e-waste out of our landfills and helping recycle. Currently less than 10% of e-waste is being properly dismantled or recycled .

2. The proceeds from recycling the e-waste will go to purchase new materials for the Fair Oaks Library. This will help to buy books for both children and adults, English language audiocassettes, magazines, CDs and DVDs.  In 2009-10, usage of the Fair Oaks Library increased by 34% while the budget for acquisition of library materials decreased by 42%.

 Acceptable e-waste includes computer monitors, TVs, printers, PCs, scanners, copiers, fax machines, toner cartridges, UPS, PDAs, tower supplies, main frame units, networking equipment, and mother board systems.  Also included are VCR/VCD/DVD players, home entertainment systems, landline & cell phones and small portable devices. 

For more information contact Georgi LaBerge at the Redwood City Library Foundation, (650)780-7045 or glaberge@redwoodcity.org.

 

And after you do something to help the environment and the library, why not treat yourself to some good food or entertainment in Redwood City?  To find out about some fun places to go in Redwood City, check out the new Facebook Fan Page: Get to Know Redwood City.
