KFDM 6-News in Beaumont

 Orange County residents were encouraged to use the post-Christmas lull to clear out their back rooms, garages and offices and recycle their electronic waste (“E-Waste”).

Keep Orange County Beautiful, in conjunction with Southeast Texas Resource Conservation & Development held an E-Waste Collection Day on Saturday January 14th 2012. The collection took place in front of the Sears Hometown Store in Orange on MacArthur Drive, from 9:00 am until 5:00 in the afternoon. (Click here to see the flyer.)

E-Waste collected that day included computers and laptops, DVD and VCR and MP3 players, and other electronic gadgets as well as home appliances, televisions and monitors – anything with a plug or battery.

Not only are the bulk and sizes of these devices bad for our landfills, but all of them contain at least one or two chemicals that can be highly toxic. The need to keep E-waste out of our landfills is becoming a major issue with municipalities and businesses – and should be foremost in the minds of the general public as well.

“We all have old electronics hanging around the house and garage.” Said J David Derosier, Chairman of Keep Orange County Beautiful. “After Christmas this increases because of the new electronic gifts that are received replacing the old ones. We need to make sure that those old ones do not go into the landfill, but are recycled.”
