A Technology Recycling Event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, October 29 at the City of Kingman Public Works Yard at 3700 E. Andy Devine Ave. Area residents are encouraged to discard their old, broken or unused televisions, computers and technology devices.

The bi-annual event is co-organized by the Mohave Community College Computer Club, MC4, on the Neal Campus-Kingman and the City of Kingman Public Works Department.

This past March, the club and city collected 11,584 pounds – of computers, printers, and televisions to be recycled. The club members removed dozens of hard drives from computers before recycling them will do so again as a service to anyone who wanted to safely recycle their old systems but protect their private data.

“It will be a great day!” said Jeremy Houston, Club President, “We are happy to help recycle these items instead of them ending up in our local landfill.”

Items that will be accepted include: televisions, monitors, computer components, records, MP3 and video players, DVD/VHS players, digital cameras, radios, cell phones, and printers. Car batteries or other items containing Freon will not be accepted.

For more information, contact MC4 club advisor for the Neal Campus-Kingman chapter, Andra Goldberg, at (928) 692-3015 or agoldberg@mohave.edu.
