THE CANADIAN RECORD
Keep Amarillo Beautiful Annual Recycling Day adds
e-waste" to event available for Panhandle residents
Keep Amarillo Beautiful will hold ts
Annual Recycling Day on Saturday, April
26th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Amarillo
Recycling Drop-Off Center located at 27th
and Hayes (just north of Llano Cemetery) in
Amarillo. Panhandle residents will be able to
drop-off many :tems for recycling and dona-
tion, including "e-waste."
A new addition to the recycle list is the
ability to donate used electronics. From
computers and game systems to cell phones
and VCRs, Goodwill Industries will be on
hand at the event to accept electronic waste
or "e-waste," which also offers a safe solu-
tion for residents. "You would never throw
your checkbook out on the curb in front of
your house or at the landfill" says Elizabeth
True Regional Program Specialist for the
Panhandle Regional Planning Commission.
"You should take the same care when dispos-
ng of your computer." If you have ever used
your personal computer to access your bank
account, order online or pay bills, you could
leave yourself vulnerable to identity theft if
you simply send your hard drive to the local
landfill. This event gives you the opportunity
to donate your e-waste and receive a certifi-
cate that the hard drive has been "scrubbed"
or cleaned by the same program used by
NASA. You will also be donating to Goodwill,
who will provide you with a donation receipt
for your 2008 taxes.
Goodwill will accept any electronic devise
(except non-working televisions), regardless
of condition, and either scrub the unit for re-
sale in their stores or send it for recycling of
all the separate components and destruction
of the hard-drive disks. Either way, your iden-
tity is safe and, you could help a low income
family obtain a computer for their home.
Goodwill Industries resells the computers
and other electronics n their stores; there-
fore, a family could obtain a complete com-
puter system including monitor and printer
for less than $200. "This is a Win/Win" for
everyone involved" says Ms. True.
The event will also play host to other or-
ganizations and agencies who will be accept-
ng donations from household appliances and
furniture, clothing, back packs and suitcases,
eyeglasses, egg cartons, paper bags and egg
cartons. The Amarillo Recycling Drop-Off
Center will also receive items for recycling
such as: aluminum and tin cans, automotive
batteries, newspapers, office and computer
paper, magazines and corrugated card-
"This event comes at a great time" says
True "You can combine spring cleaning,
April's designation of Earth Month and a
great start on tax deductions for next year's
If residents cannot make the trip to Ama-
rillo on the 26th, they can always make dona-
tions at their local recycle center for regularly
