Westview band hosts electronics recycling event

What do you do with those Christmas lights that no longer work? What about that old computer, iPad of cellphone left over from Christmas?  You can recycle them safely and responsibly.  

Whether you’re looking to clean out your garage, that storage closet, free-up the junk drawer or just do something good for the environment, there’s a way to make it happen. On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Westview High School Marching Band will be hosting a recycling collection at the school, 4200 N.W. 185th Ave.

The Westview Marching Band is requesting a $10 donation. Recycling services will be provided by EG Metals, an Environmental Technologies company with headquarters in Hillsboro.

All those plastic bags, lids, obsolete computers, cellphones, ethernet cables, phone cords and miss-matched chargers that you’ve been holding onto will finally have a purpose after all. EG Metals, a certified electronics recycler, provides full-service metal and electronics recycling in an environmentally conscious fashion, adhering to a "no landfill policy" for all products received by EG Metals.
