Free Electronic Waste and Recycling Event Set for Saturday

Proceeds will benefit the Step Up for Youth Program

Spring is the perfect time to clean out your garage, den and closets and get rid of those old TVs, computer monitors, stereo components and other outdated electronics taking up space.

The City of Santa Barbara Neighborhood & Outreach Services is holding a free electronic waste and recycling event from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday in Parking Lot 30 at UCSB (off Stadium Road).

All proceeds from the sale of the waste to the recycling operation will benefit the Step Up for Youth Program, which provides job readiness training services to underserved local youth ages 14 to 21. The event is cosponsored by UCSB’s Early Academic Outreach Program, UCSB Associated Students and the IV Give Project.

Common electronics accepted: TVs, computer monitors, computers, laptops, keyboards, printers, mice, hard drives, fax machines, microwaves, DVD players, VCRs, cables and cords, telephones, cell phones, radios, shredders, stereo components, power supplies, tapes and zip drives, toners, batteries or anything that has a plug or can take a battery. Electronics not accepted will be large appliances or fluorescent bulbs.

For more information, call Pete Leyva, Neighborhood & Outreach Services coordinator, at 805.897.1924.

— Kathleen Sullivan is the marketing coordinator for the City of Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Department.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
