Mayo runs successful electronic waste drive

In honor of Earth Day, the Mayo Clinic is accepting old electronics for recycling.

Employees with the hospital spent the day collecting old computers, TVs and other electronics as part of its electronic waste drive.

It was originally scheduled to go on until 3 p.m. but after receiving an overwhelming number of items, organizers were forced to close up early.

All of the waste collected Saturday will be delivered to Dynamic Recycling where it will be broken down and recycled.

Organizers say electronic waste shouldn’t be overlooked.
