Mattel and Waste Management are teaming up to make recycling old electronics convenient! The local community is invited to join Mattel and part ways with unused and outdated electronics by recycling them during an electronic waste event at Mattel headquarters in El Segundo, Calif.
During last year’s e-waste event, Mattel employees contributed 1,638 pounds of electronic waste to this recycling program, and thanks to the active participation of members of the community, an additional 3,427 pounds was collected.
Recyclable items include:
- Television sets
- Computer monitors and CPUs (desktop computer towers)
- Flat screen monitors
- Computer cables
- Stereo equipment
Items can be dropped off for recycling or proper disposal. The recycling process includes recovering valuable materials from electronics to make new products which reduces pollution and saves energy.
