July 15, 2011, Canton, MI – In an effort to help residents properly dispose of outdated electronic equipment, Wayne County has partnered with Vintage Tech Recyclers to offer several E-Waste Collections. The collections will all be held from 9am to 1pm on their scheduled dates at the following locations;

Before donating or recycling your equipment, remember to remove all sensitive and personal information from its memory. Reformatting the hard drive or deleting files from your computer may not be enough. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has two fact sheets that provide information about donating and a list of free software you can use to delete information from your computer. To view this information please visit www.epa.gov.

The collections are free of charge and open to Wayne County residents only. For more information or to obtain a complete list of what will and will not be accepted, please call 326-3936 or visit www.waynecounty.com.
