Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, and the Dallas Mavericks will host a free electronics recycling event to encourage the community and Dallas Mavericks basketball fans to recycle their electronics. The event will raise money for Trees for Threes and will be held on April 7, 2012, at American Airlines Center located at 2500 Victory Avenue, Dallas, TX 75219 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
“Sims Recycling Solutions and the Dallas Mavericks invite area residents to take advantage of this convenient opportunity to recycle their old or unwanted electronics. Electronic waste collection events such as these provide a vital service to the community.

This e-waste collection event will be set up as a drive-through and drop-off event. Staff will be on hand to conveniently and quickly collect items from community members’ vehicles. Please visit http://us.simsrecycling.com/news-and-resources/events for more information.
