Walgrove Avenue Elementary School in Mar Vista has scheduled an “e-waste” recycling event Saturday, January 30th where the public can drop off a variety of used electronics.
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot at Walgrove Elementary, 1630 Walgrove Ave., Mar Vista.
Community members can drop off electronic items such as computers, monitors, scanners, printers, TVs, stereos, cameras, cell phones, DVDs, copy and fax machines and iPods. No appliances will be accepted.
Proceeds raised from the event will benefit the school.
Event organizers advise residents that it is illegal to dispose of these items in the trash and there is a cost for people to dump them legally. All items collected will be recycled.
Those who are unable to make the January 30th event can also drop off prior to the event by calling (310) 503-0600.
