Wasted E-Waste? Don’t Hoard It

Staff Reports

Diamond Bar – Diamond Bar residents with unwanted electronics or hazardous waste are reminded that the Los Angeles County’s popular mobile Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste Collection is coming to Diamond Bar on Saturday, March 10.

Starting at 9 a.m. and going on until 3p.m, residents are invited to drive to the 1300 block of Bridge Gate Drive in Diamond Bar and drop of any household items banned from disposal in the garbage. Bring all of your computers, television sets, microwave ovens, batteries, expired medicine and pesticides. Recycling these items are very beneficial for the environment. Responsible E-Waste Management is our responsibility even if it is “just an old device”. Any device you donate with private information will be scrubbed and will possibly be reused as is or refurbished.

If you have an old device taking up space that you keep telling yourself you fix it one day stop fooling yourself. Sometimes throwing it away feels as if you wasted your money. This gives you the opportunity to give others opportunities they might not otherwise have had.  You know what they say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

This is a drive-through event, which means that staff at the collection site will remove the items intended for disposal without the driver having to exit the vehicle.

For more information or a complete list of what you can and cannot bring, call 800.238.0173. For details about the even, contact the City’s Environmental Services Division at 909.839.7015. Or greendb@diamondbarca.gov.
