that they will no longer use.

Global eRecyclers, Green

have organized a way for all
of us to help out the landfills.
This Saturday, July 23 is our
free e-waste recycling event at
the chamber office parking lot
at Palms Plaza, 3131 Foothill
Blvd., La Crescenta from 9:30
a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Clean
out the garage and get rid of old
televisions or computers that are
taking up space. Bring your PCs,
CPUs, televisions, CRT monitors,
printers, fax machines, copiers
and most other electronics to
the CV Chamber office parking
lot for e-recycling. Call the
chamber if you have a question
about what electronics they will
take. Global e-Recyclers, Inc.
will make sure your e-waste is
properly handled, disposed of
and recycled. They also include
identity theft protection via
data destruction of your hard
drives. And the best part of it is
the fact that you are helping the
environment and putting less in
the landfills!
