Cumberland County Solid Waste Management, the City of Fayetteville, and Sustainable Sandhills will host an Electronic Waste Drive on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the Ann Street Landfill, 698 Ann St. in Fayetteville.
The purpose of the e-Waste Drive is to help Cumberland County residents properly dispose of old, broken or unwanted electronic devices that could contain hazardous materials, such as lead. Properly disposing of electronic waste will help prolong the life of the landfill, prevent habitat destruction and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Residents will use lane three of the scale house to enter the recycling center. Signage will be placed throughout the landfill to assist with traffic and directions. Participants should remain in their cars while volunteers unload and sort electronics.
Almost anything with a cord will be accepted, including the following:
- Computers (please remove any hard drives)
- Small kitchen appliances
- Video Game consoles
- Printers (please remove ink cartridges)
- Mobile phones (please factory reset and remove SIM cards)
- CD/DVD/VHS players
- Stereo systems
The e-Waste Drive will not affect normal landfill operations.
Residents who participate in the e-waste drive will also have the opportunity to view new landfill features and amenities including the scale house, the Residential Convenience Center with multiple bins and compactors for self-sorting, and several cosmetic updates.
