Each year, 20 to 50 million metric tons of electronic products are thrown away into landfills or incinerators. This can release 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 NBC Connecticut and Comcast for the 2016 Comcast Cares Day Electronic Recycling Drive on Saturday, April 30 from 9.a.m to noon in the Westfarms Mall parking lot.
