Even though tossing electronic waste into landfills is illegal in North Carolina, only about ten percent of residents in New Hanover County make the effort to recycle. County officials say the level of apathy among residents is a head-scratcher.
But Verizon is expecting broad community participation at the e-waste drive, which takes place on Thursday, May 9th at the Verizon Call Center in Wilmington.
Break out those old cans and bottles of household cleaners: pollen is back and it’s time for spring cleaning. Once New Hanover County residents are finished with those cleaning products, they can recycle them and other household wastes, like batteries.
