Recycle Electronic Waste at Dallas College

Dallas College is hosting a series of free e-waste recycling events on their seven campuses for electronics, appliances or batteries in the coming months. The next event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., May 5, at the Richland Campus. Participants can recycle computers, network and communications devices, CRTs and LCDs, point-of-sale equipment, wires and cables, office equipment, consumer goods, audio and video equipment, and more.

Most items can be recycled at no cost, but there is a charge for certain items to cover the cost of environmentally responsible disposal. Disposal fees include $10 each for CRT monitors; $25 each for TVs; $5 each for printers, copiers and fax machines; and $20 each for AC units and refrigerators due to freon removal. Data security fees include hard drive wipe, DOD level and certificate of data destruction, $20 per drive; and document destruction, $10 per box (shredded at remote facility).

Location: 12800 Abrams Rd., Dallas. For a list of acceptable items, visit
