The goal is to provide residents and businesses in the Denver Metro area with an opportunity to properly dispose of old, obsolete or unusable computer equipment. Collecting and recycling old computer equipment is important as computers contain mercury and other unsafe elements that are harmful to the people, wildlife and the environment if not disposed of properly.
DEI has collected over 120,000 lbs. of local computer equipment, or 60 tons, this year from its free recycling events. This is the sixth recycling event of its kind hosted by the Dalbey Education Institute as part of its company-wide community outreach and volunteer initiatives.
"Working with our local partners, we feel good knowing we are providing three valuable services to the community," said DEI Founder and CEO Russ Dalbey. "We are providing a convenient way for folks to discard unwanted computer equipment, reclaiming any material that can be recycled to minimize the amount of waste and safely disposing of potentially hazardous material that could otherwise damage our environment."
A team of more than 25 DEI employee volunteers will be at the drive-up and drop-off location to assist visitors unloading their vehicles. Items accepted include, but are not limited to, computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, modems, televisions and radios. A complete list of what Executive Recycling will accept can be viewed online at http://www.executiverecycle.com/services.php
