Recycling events keep e-waste out of landfills

More than 21,000 pounds of electronics have been collected at two Verizon locations in New Jersey and Virginia to help the company’s employees and surrounding communities keep discarded computers, stereo equipment, space heaters and other e-waste out of landfills. Items collected will be recycled or disposed of in a responsible manner.

The recycling events, held in Basking Ridge and Ashburn, Virginia, followed similar events held at other Verizon locations over the past several months. As a result, the company has collected more than 40,000 pounds of e-waste.
