The Ketchikan Indian Community (KIC), Tongass Conservation Society
(TCS), Southeast Alaska Independent Living (SAIL), and City of
Ketchikan Landfill have joined forces to create an electronics
recycling event, free of charge.
WHAT: Electronics recycling
Bring us your old, used, broken, or otherwise defunct electronics
for recycling. You may bring virtually anything with a circuitboard:
TVs, phones, cell phones, computers, monitors, printers, stereos,
cd players, vhs and dvd players, copy machines, speakers, etc.
WHEN: Friday and Saturday, the 23rd and 24th of June, from 8am
WHERE: Ketchikan City Landfill
WHY: Divert these goods from the landfill, and many new products
may be made from the components. The metals and plastics can
be made into new things, and some of the better equipment that
you no longer want can be provided for use elsewhere. ALL hard
drives will be wiped clean with a magnet or smashed so there
are no security concerns.
WHO: Everyone is welcome to bring electronics. Businesses that
intend to bring large amounts should call 225.3275 and schedule
an appointment. Those businesses who bring large amounts are
encouraged to donate up to $100 to help cover the shipping and
recycling costs. All donations are tax deductible and you will
be included in a thank you letter to be published in the coming
We look forward to seeing you there!
