Consumers should by now know better than to toss old computer monitors in the trashcan (it’s hazardous waste!). But if you need more incentive to be good to the earth, take your unwanted electronic waste to Newport Beach and get into this weekend’s Toshiba Classic golf tournament.
Consumers who recycle any electronic waste at the ”Swing for the Green” event will get two free tickets good for any day of the tournament, which starts today and ends Sunday.
Toshiba, which is based in Irvine, wants to collect thousands of pounds of waste at the event to surpass last year’s 6,500 pounds of e-waste.
WHAT: Toshiba’s Swing for the Green recycling event
WHEN: Friday, March 6 to Sunday, March 8
8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. each day
WHERE: Newport Dunes (satellite parking lot of the tournament), 1131 Back Bay Drive in Newport Beach.
WHY: Recylce old electronic equipment responsibly. Items accepted include desktop PCs, laptops, computer monitors, printers, camcorders, fax machines, cell phones, VCRs, DVD players, rechargeable batteries, MP3 players and stereos.
