Don’t Throw it Away! Recycle Electronic & Household Goods at the Port of San Diego

The “Don’t Throw it Away!” recycling event was held at the Port of San Diego Administration Building on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 during Earth Week to encourage the public to recycle old or unused electronics and household goods. The public was encouraged to bring electronics such as old cell phones, laptops, computer accessories, and televisions to be properly recycled, as well as household goods such as books, clothing, and home décor.  When old electronics are not properly discarded, they can leak damaging substances into the air as well as the ground and surface water, which has harmful effects on people, animals and the planet. Reusing household goods also reduces air, water and land pollution and limits the need for natural resources to be used for making new products.
