For the second year, the Downtown Memphis Commission is partnering with 5R Processors Ltd. to celebrate America Recycles Day with a Downtown e-Recycle Drive on Tuesday, November 15 from 3 – 6:30pm at the Central Station pavilion (Front and GE Patterson).
Almost 7 tons of obsolete computers and electronic devices were collected at last year’s inaugural drive, and organizers expect to exceed that amount this year. Acceptable items include computers, televisions, printers, cameras, cell phones, VCRs, and CD/DVD players.
There is a $25 processing fee for any items that contain freon. All hard drives will be cleaned using Department of Defense-approved processes, and a certificate of harddrive cleaning will be available, if desired, for $10 per drive. There are no other fees or charges.
