It took about 11.5 tractor-trailer loads to clear out 175,000 to 225,000 pounds of electronics waste dropped off during an electronics recycling event organized a while ago at Carlisle Fairgrounds in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, USA.
The event was the product of an agreement between the county and Illinois-based Vintage Tech Recyclers to collect, package, transport and recycle electronics for free. Items were collected and processed through the Kuusakoski recycling group.
The photos of the heaps of e-rubbish I received from Vintage Tech show a dominance of enormous CRT TVs (some even in wooden cabinets) and Deskjet-ish printers which I am sure the owners were glad to get rid of. More e-waste collection events will be staged by Vintage Tech Recyclers in 2016, one in the spring and one next fall. Good job!
