Electronic Waste Accepted This Weekend at Earl Warren

A Chance to Safely Unload Potentially Harmful Garbage


Citizens needing to safely and legally rid themselves of unwanted old appliances - such as computers, monitors, television sets - can do so this weekend at Earl Warren Showgrounds, at 3400 Calle Real, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on January 12 and 13. Such an opportunity arrives a few times each year, and those who have been saving such waste are encouraged to take advantage while they can. Items collected will be hauled to the Fresno-based Electronic Recyclers.
