Slippery Rock University's Community Electronic Waste Recycling Days kicked off in earnest April 21 as cars lined up at SRU's Recycling Center at the Stores II facility on Kiester Road. Items dropped off included a variety of electronic equipment including old computers and televisions, ensuring that the items were disposed of legally. To protect personal information, organizers advise that computer hard drives should be removed and destroyed. The recycling program, part of the University's Earth Days 2017 program, is aimed at keeping electronics out of landfills, where toxic waste could seep into the ground. The event, which is free and open to the public, will continue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., April 22, 2017.
