Give us your tired TVs, your dusty DVD players and wretched radios from your teeming basements and the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) will help give them new life. The Detroit Zoo will collect old and obsolete electronics on America Recycles Day, November 15.
Electronics can be dropped off for recycling from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the large 10 Mile Road parking lot near the gazebo. The DZS will accept all electronics, including radios, printers, computers, televisions, VHS and DVD players and cell phones.
For this event, the DZS has contracted with companies that take old electronics, separate commodities such as aluminum, copper and steel, and recycle those parts with the goal of reducing the amount of e-waste that ends up in landfills.
