On Friday, October 13, 2023, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Renaissance at Colony Park and NexTech, a local IT / E-Waste disposal services company, will host an E-Waste Collection Event in recognition of International E-Waste Day. The event will be held at Renaissance at Colony Park in Ridgeland (in the Barnes & Noble parking lot) and will offer a place for local residents and small businesses to dispose of their end-of-life/discarded electronics such as laptops/personal computers, monitors, televisions, cell phones, printers, scanners, cords and the like.
This E-Waste Collection Day aims to raise awareness about the critical nature of E-Waste disposal, prevent environmental contamination, and protect personal data by using secure, sustainable disposal practices. E-Waste poses harm to the environment with toxic materials and presents risk by exposing the owner’s personal information that remains on data-bearing devices like hard drives. This event brings knowledge and resources to residents and small businesses that may be unaware of the correct methods for disposing of E-Waste and who have limited resources for disposal services. Disposing of E-Waste is a huge and ever-growing challenge and disposal methods are not equal and can even be harmful if not handled properly. NexTech, an R2V3-certified company, meets the highest standards of e-waste disposal for any industry, complying with local, state, federal and industry regulations.
