LA CROSSE, Wis. - UW La Crosse is helps residents get rid of their old TV's and computers on Monday.
The Information Technology Service held its second annual electronic waste collection. It's an opportunity for students, staff, and the public to drop off old electronics ranging from CD players to VCR's to printers.
The event helps keep potentially dangerous materials out of landfills.
"It allows us to be very earth friendly by having it all shredded, melted down, metal separated, plastics shredded and sent off to other companies and recycled," says Dave Faulkner with Information Technology Services.
Last year the university collected four tons of e-waste. Officials are hoping for at least that much again this year.19854114
