Electronics Collection

By , January 19, 2013 4:41 am

The Central Baptist Church at 457 Main Street is the place to leave your unwanted and/or non-functioning electronics this Sunday, January 20, 2013. According to Hartford 2000, these items will be “disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way.”

Items to unload between 9a.m. and noon: answering machines, calculators, camcorders, CD players, computers, copiers, DVD players, electric typewriters, fax machines, laptops, microwaves, modems, power cords, printers, radios, remote controls, stereos, telephones, televisions, and VCRs.

    The Hartford 2000 website you linked doesn’t appear to have been updated since 2009, and other than this post, I have no way of learning more details of this event or the bona fides of their “environmentally-friendly way.”

    I trust the CRRA e-cycling events in the spring and Green Monster Recycling in West Hartford for electronics recycling. Both of those have a lot of information on their respective websites.

    • You’re right in that the website is woefully outdated. The information that I have provided was given to me by the City of Hartford and did not come off the website. The link is provided merely to give readers more info about Hartford 2000 as an entity.

      I put “environmentally-friendly” in quotes because no explanation was given as to what this means. We all (should) know by now that recycling electronic waste often means outsourcing the problem to other countries. Without any details, I did not want readers misled into believing something that might be inaccurate. Let’s face it — our electronics contain horrible shit like mercury. No matter what we do with it, “friendly” does not seem like the best adjective.
