Saturday E-Waste Events This Summer!


When Salt Lake City collaborated on an e-waste recycling event last month, residents and Facebook fans contacted us to request that we host a few Saturday events.

Well, your wish is our command! Salt Lake City has scheduled the first of a series of Saturday e-waste recycling events. The events are free to city and county residents, and will take place one Saturday each month this summer (May-August).

The first event is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th from 8 a.m. to noon at the Downtown Smith’s Marketplace (450 South 600 East). Event poster (PDF).

Salt Lake City has contracted with Metech, a company known for their responsible electronic recycling practices. Materials accepted at this free event include:

  • Cameras
  • Cell Phones
  • Computers and computer parts
  • Printers
  • Scanners
  • Stereos
  • Telephones
  • Televisions
  • VCR/DVD Players

  • And more!
