Help care for our environment – Bring your electronic and universal waste to the Central RI Chamber Earth Day Collection Event.
We’re pleased to partner with Cartridge World for this FREE event that will help our community. Almost anything with a power cord can be considered E-Waste.
Most electronic products used in the workplace and homes contain hazardous substances such as lead and mercury. When these products reach the end of their useful lives or become obsolete, some are considered hazardous waste.
Most items will be collected for a donation to the Charitable Organization; however, some items such as TVs, copiers and air conditioners require a disposal fee. No white goods please!
Approved electronic and universal waste:
- Spare computer parts
- Flat screens
- Network equipment
- Computer Mice
- Printers/copier/fax machines
- Printer cartridges (ink and toner)
- Cell phones
- Window unit air conditioners
- Toaster ovens
- Fluorescent lamps
- All types of alkaline and rechargeable batteries
- Ballast (PCB and non-PCB), and more!

***In addition, we will Collect Cell Phones to be given to victims of domestic violence. Donated cell phones will be given to victims of domestic abuse. The 911 emergency number will be programmed into these phones and, in case of emergency, the used will need only to press one button to be connected to the police or emergency services. Other phones will be sent to Shelter Alliance, where they’ll be recycled in return for monetary compensation for the EBC Center.
Registration Not Required, But We'd Love To Know You Are Coming
