Where is your electronic waste ending up? Let's keep Kern County Green!

Free Electronic Waste Recycling Event

Urner's and Neil Agness E-Waste Recycling have teamed together to provide a FREE Electronic Waste Collection Event for all Kern County Residents on Saturday, May 1st. The hours for the event will be 9am - 3pm. If you can not attend the event on 5-1, you can still drop your e-waste off in the Urner's parking lot from 4-22 up until the event in the special electronic waste bins located in the parking lot..

Businesses and Residents are invited to bring their unwanted (working or non-working) electronic items to the parking lot of Urner's, located at 4110 Wible Road, Bakersfield, California 93313.

Items accepted at NO COST include Televisions & Computer Monitors (With no restrictions on size or quantity), CPU's and other computer accessories. Also accepted are all other electronic devices that can be plugged into the wall.

The electronic waste collected at this event will be sent to be processed locally in Bakersfield at Alianza Recycling, who is an approved recycler for the State of California, as opposed to being shipped to other countries and ending up in an illegal dumping ground like this picture depicts. When you purchase a new television or computer monitor, the recycling fee helps to fund these collection events and the proper recycling of the cathode ray tubes found in the old televisions and monitors which contain approx. 3-5 lbs of lead.

Any questions, please call Neil @ 661-369-9861 or e-mail nlagness@yahoo.com
