The City of Aiken is please to announce that it will offer an E-Waste Drive on April 21, 2018 during The Earth Day Aiken event. This E-rase E-Waste Drive is free and open to the public. This is a collaborative service with Aiken County and It will provide a place to dispose and recycle unwanted electronic waste. The collection will be set up in the parking lot behind AECOM Theater and Regions Bank accessed from the Chesterfield St entrance and will take place 8:30 A.M.-2:00 P.M.

Electronic Consumers are urged to bring only; unwanted desktop and laptop computers, keyboards, computer speakers and mice, printers, home and cell phones, PDAs, DVD/VCR Players, TVs, LCD and Flat Panel and CRT monitors, to be recycled, to the E-Waste Collection during the The Earth Day Aiken Event.

E-waste, or electronic waste, refers to old electronics that are no longer wanted. These products contain dangerous toxins like lead and mercury that should not be thrown in with the rest of the trash, but should be reused or recycled instead. Although they are a small portion of the waste stream by volume, computers and electronics constitute the fastest growing component of the municipal waste stream and contribute a significant amount of the toxicity found in landfills.
