Computer Recycling Opportunity

America Recycles Day is coming up next week and a special computer recycling opportunity will be available locally. In conjunction with the national event, the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce is opening their doors as a drop off location to dispose of used computer equipment from monitors to towers or keyboards. “They will be kept at our location under lock and key during the drop off week,” says Chamber Director Joel Brown. “Our conservation committee wanted to give people ample opportunity to get rid of old computers and equipment in a safe way. A company from Salt Lake will then pick up the equipment and properly destroy them so no personal information left on the machines can be accessed.” There is no cost to recycle your computers and equipment with the exception of large tube-type monitors or TVs. These can be dropped off but there is a fee attached because the process to safely dispose of that equipment is complicated and extensive. Equipment can be dropped off from November 15th through the 22nd.
