As electronics retailers begin their advertising blitzes for new televisions in time for the height of football season, many people will be looking for ways to properly dispose of their old televisions and other electronic items.  The Greater San Fernando Valley Chamber of Commerce is offering a free electronics waste collection event on Saturday, April 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the parking lot of Canoga Bowl located at 20122 Vanowen Street at the corner of Winnetka.  

What is E-Waste

E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately, electronic discards is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation's waste stream.  

Most electronic devices contain a variety of materials, including metals, that can be recovered for recycling. Recycling your waste electronics saves resources and protects the Earth because new metals don't have to be mined. In addition, some electronic products contain high enough levels of certain materials, such as lead, that render them hazardous waste when disposed. California law designates waste televisions and monitors as hazardous. Hazardous wastes cannot be disposed with municipal trash

Here is a partial list of E-Waste items you may drop-off at the collection event.  If it is electronic - it is probably acceptable:
