RLG Americas, in partnership with electronics manufacturers Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Microsoft and Vtech, is providing free electronics recycling events throughout this year for District residents, small businesses and nonprofits at various locations.

The next event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 10 at the collection vehicle parked on V Street NW between 13th Street and 14th Street (near the Harrison Playground), RLG Americas said.

All events will be held rain or shine on Saturdays throughout the year in different wards. Examples of items that will be accepted include computers, tablets, monitors, TVs, desktop printers, mice, keyboards and cellphones.

A complete list of acceptable items and collection event dates and locations can be found at www.rlgamericas.com/DCecycling. RLG will not accept items that are not on the acceptable items list.

“With the increase of work-from-home arrangements, we hope to provide residents and small businesses support in managing e-waste that may be piling up at home that collection events in the District provide a much-needed service,” said Matthias Burger, RLG Americas CEO. “People can feel safe that we use the highest level of care in collecting and recycling items. We are long-term players in this process.”
