Electronic Waste Recycling Drive Scheduled for Nov. 17

Nov 02, 2018

An Electronic Waste (e-waste) Drive will take place Saturday, Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Cumberland County Courthouse parking lot at 117 Dick Street, Fayetteville.

The e-waste recycling drive is part of an effort to reduce waste and support a state law that prohibits disposing of computer equipment, televisions and other electronics in North Carolina landfills.

Electronics that can be recycled include, but are not limited to, lamps, vacuums, televisions that are 50 inches or smaller in size, DVD players, radios, computers and small appliances. Almost anything with a cord can be recycled at the drive. The electronics will be collected by Cumberland County Solid Waste Management for recycling.

Televisions larger than 50 inches, large appliances, and hazardous waste materials will not be accepted at the drive, however they may be dropped of at the Ann Street landfill or any of the Container Sites throughout the county.

The e-waste drive is a partnership between Cumberland County, Cumberland County Schools, City of Fayetteville and Sustainable Sandhills.

County Solid Waste accepts electronics at all of its convenience centers and the Ann Street Landfill year-round during normal business hours. Go to co.cumberland.nc.us/solid_waste or call 910-321-6830 for more information about items that can be recycled.
