Earth Day 2017 E-Waste Locations and Schedule

Earth Day 2017This year Vet Tech is working with many local communities and organizations to provide for Earth Day 2017 collection of electronic waste. As you are aware, Illinois law now prohibits electronic waste from landfill refuse. Support the environment and our veteran programs by dropping off your unwanted electronics at these locations.

Televisions and monitors will be accepted; however, there will be a $25 disposal charge for each television or monitor brought to earth day locations.  For TVs larger than 40″ a $45 donation will be requested. For those who incur this charge a coupon in the amount of your donation will be provided which can be used for purchase of quality rebuilt computer products.  Your coupon can be redeemed by clicking into our online store featuring rebuilt computer equipment.

Check the location and date nearest you, bring your electronic waste, and help Vet Tech make Earth Day 2017 a great success for our environment and our US Veterans.  Hope to see you there!
