Goodwill Industries of San Joaquin Valley announced Wednesday that they are teaming with California-based Electronic Recyclers to help with the growing problem of "electronic waste." The initiative, authorized by the State of California, is to get people to drop off their used computers, monitors, cell phones, etc at Goodwill instead of just throwing them away, which results in environmental problems at and around local landfills.
Electronic Recyclers' role in this partership is to physically recycle the items by de-manufacturing them and destroying the hazardous material inside. This initiative is taking place in California because the State has had more notorious problems with e-waste than many other states in the country.This is a great way for the electronically-savvy members of the Green Party to help the environment, and hopefully other, non-activist Californians will also become mindful of the potential threats of electronic waste and take advantage of the Goodwill/Electronic Recyclers new joint partnership. The current drop-off spots in California for used electronic materials are at Stockton, Lodi, Manteca, Tracy, Modesto, Turlock, Merced, Fresno, Clovis and Visalia.
