Huntsville Electronic Recycling Day Announced

The City of Huntsville’s 12th annual Electronics Recycling Day will be held Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Recycling Drop-Off Center, located at 590 Interstate 45 North.
The event is free to the citizens of Huntsville and is held yearly to recycle computers, printers, monitors, mice, keyboards, computer parts, scanners, televisions, cell phones, rechargeable batteries, plasma/LCD/LED screens, and stereos, in order to keep them out of landfills.
For the last nine years, Technocycle has provided staff, trucks and packing supplies to haul away electronics. Over 154 tons of recyclable electronics have been collected since 2008, including over seven tons in 2017.
Technocycle offers a range of reliable options, including onsite and remote hard drive data erasure to Department of Defense standards, mechanical shredding of hard drives and tape media, and erasure or destruction of data on computers, copiers, printers, networking IT, cell phones and PDAs. All equipment will be either reused or recycled into commodities. No equipment is shipped or given away to another country.
All electronics have hazardous materials, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. TechnoCycle performs data sanitization with specialized disk wiping software to ensure proper erasure of data.
