Instead of putting discarded electronics in the trash, recycle them safely while protecting the environment 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in a city-sponsored collection day, city officials announced.

Bring discarded electronics to the parking lot between the Corporation Yard and the police facility at 91st Street and San Salvador Drive.

Officials said the event allows these discards to avoid being placed in a landfill where hazardous or toxic elements they contain could leach into the environment.

Instead these items go to an electronics recycling contractor who refurbishes or disassembles them for recycling or for the resale of useful parts, officials said.
