Free E-Waste Event at Dan O. Root II Elementary


Dan O. Root II Elementary School is hosting a free electronic waste collection event open to all businesses and residents of California. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday Jan. 24 and Sunday Jan. 25, rain or shine.

Root Elementary is located at 820 Harrier Dr., Suisun City, 94585. Click for map>>

The event is being co-sponsored by Root Elementary, City of Suisun City, Solano County and Universal Waste Management, Inc.

To better serve the community Universal Waste is combining their E-waste drop-off events with a Food Drive & Coat Drive. So while you are cleaning out your garage of your old TV’s and computer monitors, grab a couple of non-perishable food items to donate to your food bank and a clean old coat you do not use to donate to one warm coat.

The state approved collector and recycler will take your old televisions, monitors, computers, VCRs, DVD players, fax, printing & copy machines. They will also accept cables, power cords, toner cartridges, cell phones, keyboards, mice, audio, visual and telephone equipment for 100% environmentally friendly recycling.

Large household appliances, batteries and fluorescent light bulbs will not be acceptable; however microwave ovens can be dropped off for a $5.00 recycling fee.

This event is a fund-raiser for Dan O Root Elementary School,so although not required, donations will be accepted and greatly appreciated.

It cannot be more convenient to do the right thing and dispose of these old electronic items correctly! Drive through the parking lot, pop your trunk, the UnWaste team will lift the old electronic equipment out, and you drive on your way. You don’t even have to get out of your car!

It is free, convenient, and the right thing to do. So come on out and help us save the planet, feed some people in need give free warm coats to families across the country and raise money for a great cause. We hope to see you there because together “Yes we Can” make a difference!
