The Venice Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring an electronic waste (e-waste) collection event from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, October 18th, to allow the public to dispose of unwanted e-waste safely, while generating revenue for the community.

The drop-off location for the event is Coeur d’Alene Avenue Elementary School, 810 Coeur d’Alene Ave., Venice.

The collection event will accept electronic items, including monitors (cathode ray tubes), flat-panel screens (LCD), computers (desk tops and portables), computer parts and accessories, printers, cell phones, digital cameras and Walkman-type devices, as well as copiers, fax machines, scanners, VCRs and typewriters.
