The community is invited to drop off their old and non?functional cell phones, televisions, computers, calculators, digital clocks, and other electronic devices at the e?waste recycling truck at EarthFest LA 2013 at West Los Angeles College on September 28.

Additionally, materials such as aluminum, copper, silver and plastics are recovered, conserving resources and the energy needed to produce new electronic equipment from virgin resources.
