Knoxville eCycle event this Saturday!!!

eCycle as in recycled computers, that is.

This Saturday, May 14, you can drop off old computers, parts, peripherals, TVs and a few other electronic items for recycling at two Knoxville locations:
  • Farragut High School (11237 Kingston Pike)
  • Comcast Communications (5720 Asheville Highway)
Locations will be accepting "donations" from 9am - 3pm. There's a small fee for some items that require more careful processing & disposal. All proceeds will benefit local charities, including The Optimist Club of West Knoxville, Habitat for Humanity, Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley and Goodwill Industries.

For more information, visit the "Plug-In to Your Community" website at

Here's a fun fact from the Plug-In site:
Dumping 500 million computers into landfills amounts to the introduction of more than 1.2 billion pounds of lead, 2 million pounds of cadmium and 400,000 pounds of mercury into the waste streams and water supply.
