There was plenty to do for the many volunteers who showed up at last Saturday’s free electronic waste recycling event in Payson before E-Waste Harvesters’ crew wrapped the pallets with shrink wrap and a front-end loader prepared to place the pallets on the cargo truck.

Payson packs on pounds at electronic waste event

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality completed the spring phase of its 2012 Free Electronics Waste Recycling Program with a successful event in the parking lot of Payson’s Multi-Event Center on April 28. A total of 166 vehicles from Payson and the surrounding region brought 23,200 pounds of e-waste for recycling. The vehicle total was far more than either of the two previous events that ADEQ sponsored in Payson. A total of 31,000 pounds had been collected at the two earlier e-waste events.
