The public is invited to deliver their electronic waste to the Tynes Bay Waste Treatment Facility for recycling on Saturday [Dec 7] from 7.30am to 3.00pm.

A government spokesperson said, “On Saturday, December 7 from 7.30am to 3.00pm, the public is invited to deliver their electronic waste or e-waste to the Tynes Bay Waste Treatment Facility for recycling.

“The Ministry of Public Works, Department of Operations and Engineering is holding an e-waste drive to encourage the safe and responsible disposal of old laptops, computers, cable boxes cell phones and other electronic devices, by delivering them to Tynes Bay for recycling.

“During the drive, fees for commercial vehicles delivering loads of e-waste will be waived.”

“E-waste that is tossed into landfills or otherwise incorrectly disposed of leaches toxic substances, including lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium, polyvinyl chloride, and chromium into the earth, polluting the soil, groundwater, and the air,” said Minister of Public Works, Lt. Col. David Burch, “Responsibly disposing of e-waste helps protect our environment and keeps Bermuda beautiful for all.”
