Participate in an environmentally responsible free event that will prevent your electronic waste from entering into a landfill and polluting our environment.  e-Green promotes “zero waste to landfill” ethics and operates “cradle to cradle” under all Federal, State and local regulations to ensure the responsible recycling of all e-waste collected.  e-Green will recycle your unwanted electronic equipment, including:  computers, fax machines, scanners, laptops, monitors, typewriters, copiers, cameras, cell phones, televisions, printers, telephones, servers, PDAs, batteries.
