Janesville, WI (June 8, 2011) – Universal Recycling Technologies (URT) is celebrating its recent successes and ongoing commitment to responsible recycling with a series of FREE community e-cycling events this June. Bring your old computers, monitors, printers, TVs and other household electronics—you name it!—and URT will recycle them for FREE. It’s our small way of saying thank you to the local southern Wisconsin residents that have supported us throughout the years and make us proud to be headquartered in this great state.
WHEN: Saturday, June 18 from 10am-2pm
WHERE: Three convenient southern Wisconsin locations:
The Janesville Mall, 2500 Milton Avenue, Janesville, WI 53546
Look for the big trucks in the mall parking lot facing Milton Ave., near Kohl’s Department Store
East Towne Mall, 89 East Towne Mall, Madison, WI 53704
Look for the big trucks in the frontage area in front of the food court and Barnes & Noble
West Towne Mall, 66 West Towne Mall, Madison, Wisconsin 53719
Look for the big trucks just behind Sears and adjacent to Dick’s Sporting Goods
WHAT: URT will recycle at NO COST any and all types of household electronic equipment. So bring your old
computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals (including keyboards, mice, disk drives, etc.), printers, televisions, cell phones and other household electronics, like old VHS and DVD players. We will take it all and recycle it properly for FREE!*
* URT regrets it is unable to accept appliances, dehumidifiers or mercury-containing devices.
WHO: Residents from any municipality or county are welcome to attend this event. Visitors can rest assured their items will be recycled in an environmentally sustainable manner. URT’s Janesville Campus is ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and e-Stewards® certified. e-Stewards recyclers adhere to the strictest available recycling standards in the industry. Read more about these recent honors here.
WHY: This e-cycling extravaganza is in celebration of URT-Janesville’s recent ISO and e-Stewards certifications. URT champions responsible recycling. Electronic waste (e-waste), and in particular the leaded glass used in older-model TV screens and computer monitors, is hazardous if not properly recycled. Electronic equipment contains poisons like lead and cadmium, which can leech into the environment, potentially contaminating soil and groundwater. This is URT’s third annual free recycling collection event in Madison, WI and one of many it supports nationwide to encourage responsible recycling.
BONUS: Can’t make it on June 18? On Saturday June 25 from 10am-2pm URT will host a second FREE recycling event at its headquarters, 2535 Beloit Avenue, Janesville, WI. Once again, we invite you to stop by with your old computers and household electronics.
