If you've been doing some spring cleaning and don't know what to do with old electronics you don't use anymore, you can't just throw them away in a landfill—they must be disposed of properly. Here's your chance!

The annual Erase the E-Waste event will take place on Wednesday, June 5, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM at 5226 134th Ave NW, Chamley Pipe & Salvage (just north of the landfill on 85B).

ND E-Waste will be on hand to collect and recycle a wide range of electronics, including cell phones, computer terminals, televisions, printers, copiers, and specialized electronic equipment. CRT and flat-screen televisions will be accepted for a small recycling fee based on their size.

There is a donation made to Bras for a Cause for each computer tower, laptop or tablet brought in. E-cycling not only supports environmental sustainability but also raises funds for a local charity.


Why It's Important

Recycling electronics is crucial due to the diverse metals and chemicals used in manufacturing LCD screens, computer chips, and other electronic components. Improper disposal of e-waste can lead to the leaching of toxic materials like lead into the environment, causing long-term issues such as neurological damage in humans.

Properly recycling electronic devices allows us to recover valuable materials, minimize hazardous waste, and reduce the strain on natural resources. Additionally, e-waste recycling helps curb greenhouse gas emissions and supports the circular economy. It is essential for individuals, businesses, and governments to promote and participate in e-waste recycling to safeguard our planet for future generations.

The electronic recycling event is open to all residents of Williston and neighboring areas. A mobile shred truck will be available for secure document shredding, and a customer appreciation lunch will be served.

This is the ONLY electronic recycling event this year. For more information call (701) 774-2248.
