Go Green with the Center

The Center will hold a free e-waste recycling drive on Friday, June 19 from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday, June 20 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Everyone is invited to drop off their unwanted electronic items for safe disposal including: computers, printers, PDAs, rechargeable batteries, VCRs/DVRs, cabling, cell phones, TVs, digital cameras, LCD monitors, phone systems and more. Electronic products can contain harmful chemicals such as lead, mercury and cadmium that may seep into the water table. This event will ensure all items are disposed of in an environmentally-safe manner and that any useable devices or parts are repurposed so it doesn't end up in already crowded landfills.

The collection drop-off site will be on the Center's community plaza with access from the Avenue of the Arts (Center address is 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, 92626). A map of the exact location is below.

The e-waste collection drive is being organized by the Center's Green Team which was formed earlier this year to put energy-efficient principles to work throughout the campus. The Green Team has worked to reduce paper usage, institute more recycling bins, stock the kitchen with reusable mugs and improve green office signage around the office. The Green Team is part of the Center's overall commitment to conserving energy and using energy more efficiently.
