 FREE Electronics Recycling July 19th at RFK Stadium

Sponsored by:  LG Electronics USA, Vintage Tech Recyclers,

CEA and Safe Kids Worldwide


Washington, DC – July 10, 2014 RFK Stadium is the setting for LG Electronics USA, Vintage Tech Recyclers, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and Safe Kids Worldwide to offer local residents a free solution for responsibly recycling outdated, unused and older electronics products, including TVs, monitors, cell phones and more. Please join us from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 19th at RFK Stadium, 2400 E. Capitol St. SE, Parking Lot 3 (Corner of E. Capitol St. & 19th St., NE) across from Armory Mall.

To help assure responsible recycling for consumers, the LG Electronics Recycling Program works with e-Stewards-certified recyclers, like Vintage Tech Recyclers, which is an e-Stewards, R2, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certified electronics recycling company. Vintage Tech provides IT asset management, responsible recycling solutions, and hard drive security in their facilities nationally.

Vintage Tech Recyclers ensures to all customers that all electronics are properly handled and recycled and all hard drives are protected using NIST 800-88 compliant software wiping.

The FREE electronics recycling event will be held Saturday, July 19 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at RFK Stadium, 2400 E. Capitol St. SE, Parking Lot 3 (Corner of E. Capitol St. & 19th St., NE) across from Armory Mall.   Residents are encouraged to stay in their vehicles as Vintage Tech Recyclers personnel and volunteers will assist in unloading material.

According to LG Electronics USA Vice President John Taylor, by recycling old electronic products, useful materials such as glass, plastic and metal can be re-used in the manufacture of other products. “Recycling electronics minimizes the amount of hazardous waste in the landfills and the extraction of new raw materials from the earth. LG encourages consumers to replace older TVs and computer monitors with new ENERGY STAR certified models helps consumers save energy and money while addressing climate change,” he said.
