Santa Clarita residents will have the opportunity to recycle their unwanted electronics during the annual Emblem Academy e-waste event on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event benefits residents and the academy’s STEM activities. The school is designated as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) school in the Saugus Union School District. The event is sponsored by the Los Angeles Conservation Corps, which will collect the e-waste and take it to a recycling facility.
The annual e-waste recycling event has become very popular within the community, and they are now hosting multiple events this year, according to the group.
Electronics are produced with a multitude of precious, and potentially environmentally harmful, materials. By responsibly recycling electronic devices, these materials can be safely removed and repurposed, keeping them out of landfills.
