10% of gross proceeds from the event will be donated to Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic. Most electronic devices will be accepted at no cost, including computers, monitors, televisions, phones, computer parts, laptops, DVD players, VCRs, cables/wires, printers, digital cameras, portable electronics, and most anything that has an electric cord or runs on batteries. However, refrigerators, air conditioners, batteries, light bulbs, and thermostats cannot be accepted at this event.

"We are pleased to work with AER on this event," said Antonio Garcia, CEO of SLS. "All Electronics Recycling’s service capabilities combined with its social mission are a natural complement to our commitment of improving our environment with the highest ethical standards."

E-Waste in Los Angeles studies have shown that the city of Los Angeles alone generates nearly 10 million tons of solid waste annually yet has one of the highest recycling rates in the nation. The city has adopted a 75% waste diversion target by 2013 and the long-term goal of zero waste by 2025. Discarded electronics are the fastest growing segment of the municipal waste stream and are regulated under California's Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003, the first law of its kind in the nation.

Industry Expansion - As environmental legislation and policies set more stringent requirements for the disposal of these items, many analysts and practitioners expect e-waste to grow faster than any other waste stream over the next 5 years. The benefits of e-waste management and recycling are many, including conservation of natural resources, creation of new jobs, prevention of environmental contamination by toxic chemicals, and reduction of energy requirements used in mining and refining new raw materials.
