“Volunteer” to Have Your Electronic Waste Picked Up from Your Curbside
Lancaster, CA – As part of the City of Lancaster’s 7th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Lancaster residents can now “volunteer” to have their electronic waste picked up from the convenience of their curb. In order to receive this advanced level of service, residents must register with the MLK Jr. Day of Service program by Thursday, January 16, 2014. Registered participants will have their electronic waste picked up during the week of Tuesday, January 21 through Friday, January 24, 2014.
This special opportunity is a temporary expansion of the City’s ongoing Electronic Waste Recycling Program where residents have the opportunity to bring their electronic waste to the 24-hour Recycling Center at 615 West Avenue H. This program was developed by the City of Lancaster in cooperation with CalRecycle to help residents rid themselves of obsolete electronics without having to face possible fines for illegally dumping their waste into household trash. For a complete list of acceptable forms of electronic waste, please visit www.cityoflancasterca.org/24-hr-recycling.
You may register for this special curbside pick-up opportunity by visiting the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service webpage www.cityoflancasterca.org/mlkday and register as a “volunteer” for the Electronic Waste Pick-up project within the online volunteer application.
