The City of Scotts Valley and ECS Refining Team Up to Divert E-waste from Landfills

Scotts valley 10th Annual E-waste Collection Event

On Saturday September 15, 2012, the City of Scotts Valley held its annual e-waste collection event. It was the City’s 10th annual event and a tremendous success! As a service to its residents and businesses, the City and Scotts Valley Rotary collected over 20,000 pounds (10 tons) of electronics, mostly in the form of computers, monitors and television sets. These items are now banned from landfill disposal because of their hazardous material content of lead, mercury, and other heavy metals.

By participating in this event, the community helped to insure that the items collected will be properly recycled and disposed by ECS Refining, an E-Steward Certified Recycler, and will not become a source of pollution to local rivers, streams and groundwater supplies.    

Proceeds will benefit Rotary community programs and Scotts Valley recycling programs.
