ENGLEWOOD - Arrow Electronics Inc. (NYSE: ARW), in partnership with Comcast, the city and county of Denver Public Works/Denver Recycles program and Sports Authority Field at Mile High, is offering a day-long electronics recycling day on Aug. 11.
The drive-through event will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and items to be accepted include home office machines, mobile devices, computer hardware and peripherals, TV and gaming equipment and small appliances such as microwaves.
Those recycling that day will have a chance to meet past Denver Bronco players and Bronco cheerleaders while legally, securely and cost-effectively disposing of their electronics, Arrow said.
A new recycling law went into effect in Colorado on July 1, requiring state residents to divert electronics from landfills unless their county is not yet ready to offer a recycling program.
"As a leader in IT asset disposition solutions for companies around the world, Arrow is sponsoring the Mile High Electronics Recycling Event to give residents in our home state the opportunity to securely dispose of unwanted or inoperable electronics," said Mark Majeske, Arrow's president of global reverse logistics.
"Donated items will have all data removed and may be repurposed for charitable donations or recycled through methods that ensure hazardous materials are never incinerated, exported to developing countries or sent to landfills."
Appointments are required to drop off the electronics, with fees of $5 per vehicle for all accepted items including one screen (TV or monitor) and $10 for each additional screen.
Appointments can be made at www.DenverGov.org/ecorally. For more information, visit [email protected].
