The Gun Lake Tribe’s next electronics recycling event will be Wednesday, Sept. 5 from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. at the Tribe’s Government Campus near Gun Lake Casino at 2872 Mission Drive, Shelbyville. Follow signs to the area near the public works building.
The tribe supports electronic waste recycling because it is a growing concern to our environment. Electronic waste can leak harmful toxins into landfills, soil and groundwater.
Acceptable items include office and household electronics, cell phones, radios, microwaves, VCRs and TVs, computer laptops, computer monitors, keyboards and mice, printers, speakers and power cords.
Comprenew uses best practices in electronics recycling and data security and will erase or destroy all computer hard drives. They do not ship electronic waste overseas and the zero-landfill policy requires that all electronics are recycled, refurbished or reused.
The public is encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to properly dispose of obsolete electronic items.
