San Diego, CA, May 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) is partnering with Recycle San Diego (RSD) to host an e-waste recycling campaign at their facility in National City. The free recycling event is open to the public and runs May 19th through May 25th at National/54 Self Storage located at 132 West 33rd Street, National City, (619) 512-5020. The facility is open seven days a week from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and will be accepting: computers, monitors, televisions, small printers, laptops, cell phones, copiers, fax machines, and more (a full list is available at http://recyclesandiego.org/services/electronics-recycling). Electronic devices contain hazardous and toxic substances that pose serious risks to the environment and consumer health and it is illegal to dispose of e-waste in the refuse.
According to Managing Member J. Terry Aston, "We’re partnering with RSD to make it convenient for residents and businesses in National City to drop off their electronic equipment for recycling. For example, heavy metals can leach into landfill soil and then into our underground water supply, causing severe and even life-threatening illnesses. TV’s and computer monitors use cathode ray tubes (CRTs), which contain a significant amount of lead, a highly toxic heavy metal. Printed circuit boards contain plastic and copper, and most have small amounts of chromium, lead solder, nickel and zinc. RSD’s primary goal is to reuse and re-purpose components before recycling, therefore we’re offering our facility as a drop-off location to assist in their efforts, which in turn benefits all San Diegans.”
