The Eldorado High Eagle Earth and Reality Project, in partnership with Albuquerque Recycling Inc., will accept electronics for recycling from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, March 29, at the school, 11300 Montgomery NE.

The event is intended to provide community members with an opportunity to bring their e-scrap for recycling at a convenient time and location.

"It is very important for our students to take control of their own futures as well as the Earth's," said EHS teacher and Eagle Earth sponsor Eric Holmes. "Proper recycling of electronic components translates into a healthier environment. They are our future professionals and many will make decisions that will have a major impact on our world. There is no doubt that good habits adopted now will transfer to their adult lives."

Associate sponsors of the Eldorado event include the National Honors Society, Language Honors Societies, Key Club, DECA, Best Buddies, BSU, and FEA.

One CRT monitor per car will be recycled for free. Additional CRT monitors and ALL CRT televisions cannot be accepted. Anyone needing to recycle older CRT televisions should take them to Best Buy Electronics.  Best Buy is dedicated to recycling a large variety of electronics in a responsible way.

Electronics and other items accepted for recycling include: desktop computers, monitors, laptops, servers, printers, scanners, stereos, satellite equipment, rechargeable batteries, UPS batteries, phones, cell phones, cords and wire, computer keyboards and peripherals, ink and toner cartridges, palm pilots, lead acid batteries, motors, microwave ovens, cameras, computer game assemblies, CD and DVD players, CDs and DVDs, pots and pans, specialized electronic equipment and Christmas lights.
