Reminder: i3 Detroit Electronics Recycling Event tomorrow!



The i3 Detroit technology cooperative will hold an electronics recycling drive on Saturday July 11th, 2009, in downtown Ferndale. Volunteers from i3 Detroit will accept drop-offs from 9AM to 3PM outside of Go Comedy, 261 E. 9 Mile Rd., Ferndale. The group will also hold a raffle for $300 in prizes at the event.

In Metro Detroit, electronics cannot be recycled curbside. Instead, residents usually have to make an appointment to take their old electronics to a SOCCRA drop-off center[1]. The i3 recycling drive will give Metro Detroiters an alternative way to recycle their old electronics, as well as raise awareness for the importance of electronics recycling in general.

According to the EPA, electronics can contain harmful materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium and brominated flame retardants[2]. Keeping these materials out of landfills can help reduce air and water pollution. All electronics collected at the event will be recycled by Silicon Alley Recyclers (

Attendees will also be able to purchase raffle tickets for laptop cases from SFBags, gift certificates, and t-shirts from Snorg Tees. The proceeds will go towards opening i3 Detroit’s community workshop in the Russell Industrial Center.
