Electronic waste is a growing problem for our planet. Each year tons of toxic materials and heavy metals end up in our landfills.
The Exploration Station has developed a program to recycle electronics in an environmentally friendly manner. Your tax-deductible donations of electronics help support our many children’s programs.
What we take: televisions, monitors, computers, laptops, printers, copiers, office machines, phones, fax machines, speakers, stereos, all office electronics. We are a California state approved facility, and the Exploration Station receives money through a government recycling initiative that we allocate toward our children’s programs and operating expenses.
Things we do not take: We are unable to take household appliances including microwaves, vacuums, all batteries including battery packs and back-up’s or light bulbs.
Along with our recycling efforts, we also rebuild many of the computers we receive through our Computers 4 Youth program.
Once rebuilt, these computers are distributed to school aged children, veterans, seniors and the disabled who would otherwise be unable to afford one.
We also pick up very large televisions and large loads of electronics at no charge in the greater south county area. Pick ups are provided by volunteers who use their own vehicle and fuel. Your tax-deductible donations are greatly appreciated and these help to support our volunteer appreciation events.
For all questions about all pick-ups from homes and businesses, please call Holly at 805.473.1421 or email Holly@explorationstation.org
