Each year, 20 to 50 million metric tons of electronic products are thrown away into landfills or incinerators. This releases harmful toxic chemicals which threaten the health of humans and the environment.
Instead of throwing out your old or unused electronics, let’s recycle them!
Join Comcast and NBC Connecticut for the 2015 Comcast Cares Day Electronic Recycling Drive on Sat., April 25 from 9.a.m to 1 p.m. The event will be held at the Sears parking lot at Corbin’s Corner in West Hartford.
