DB Setting New Record for their Largest E-Waste Collection to Date

Over 150 Tons of Carbon Emissions Eliminated Last Year 

City of Diamond Bar

Diamond Bar – The City of Diamond Bar invites you to their annual Earth Day Celebration! The event will take place at the Air Quality Management District on April 23rd from 9 am to 1 pm. The Earth Day Celebration will provide the community with the opportunity to drop off unwanted electronic devices, textiles, and much more!

Last year, Diamond Bar set their new record of eliminating over 150 tons of carbon emissions at their Eco Expo. The Eco Expo took place on America Recycles Day, November 14th. Now, the City of Diamond Bar is looking to reach their goal of eliminating 200 tons of carbon emission on their Earth Day Celebration! In order to meet this new projected goal, “We decided to partner with All Green Electronics Recycling once again!” exclaimed Alfa Lopez, City of Diamond Bar Management Analyst. Last year, we chose to partner with All Green because “they made us feel that our event was in good hands during all communications and they have all of the required certifications within the E-Waste recycling industry.” Because All Green is an e-Stewards and R2 certified E-Waste recycler, the community could rest assured that no material collected would be sent overseas to developing nations or dumped into landfills.

This year’s Earth Day Celebration will include a garden mulch giveaway, e-waste recycling, and earth-friendly activities for children. Additionally, “this year, we are also super excited about our electric vehicle display and smart gardening workshop,” stated Lopez. Like always, the City takes extra measures to take care of its environment and provide essential resources to residents. Out of all the services provided at last year’s Eco Expo, electronic waste recycling was “the busiest service of that day!” said Ms. Alfa Lopez “and we hope to see more people attend.”

Be sure to check out City of Diamond Bar’s Earth Day Celebration! This will be a great way to remind everyone what we can do to help preserve the environment. “Help us be part of the solution!” says Lopez. While electronic devices such as computers, laptops and cell phones are always accepted, Diamond Bar’s E-Waste Recycling Event Page provides a full list of all accepted and prohibited items for this particular event. It is important to check if your device qualifies for free recycling before going to the next event.
