Charleston County encourages residents to recycle electronics Nov. 13

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County's Environmental Management Department will hold an Electronic Recycling Day to coincide with America Recycles Day on Saturday, November 13 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  The third annual event will be held at Tanger Outlet Center at the front entrance parking lot.

Charleston County residents can drop off their old, non-working, or unused electronics to be recycled.  Electronic devices often consist of precious metals (gold or silver), more common metals (aluminum and copper), and engineered plastics.  Electronic recycling helps to recover these valuable materials while also conserving energy and landfill space.

The event is to accommodate Charleston County residents only; businesses or contractors will not be allowed to drop off electronics. Volunteers will be present to help with unloading electronics and directing traffic.
