Electronics Recycling This Weekend in Arlington

Think twice before ditching those electronics.

What do you get when you mix spring cleaning with Earth Week?  A great opportunity to recycle things you aren't using anymore.

Luckily, this Saturday in Arlington, Allied and Heroes for Children are holding a spectacular electronic recycling event at Cowboys Stadium.

Anyone can drop off unwanted electronic devices, and meet some of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Lot 10.

Acceptable items include printers, LCD flat-screen monitors and televisions, computers, telephones, laptop batteries and more.  They don't need washers, dryers, paper, AA batteries, paints, oils, explosives or government property.  It is, after all, an electronics recycling event.

See a full list of acceptable and unacceptable items here.

If any of the electronics to be recycled have personal data on them, you should erase that data prior to making your donation.

Not only will you be keeping electronics out of local landfills, but proceeds from the reused or recycled material will be donated to Heroes for Children, a local charitable organization that provides support to families with children that have been diagnosed with cancer.
