Virginia Aquarium E-cycling Event

Aug 23, 2010

The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center in partnership with TFC Recycling will offer its third E-cycling event Saturday, September 18, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Virginia Aquarium East Parking Lot.

“This is truly a win, win situation,” said April Strickland, organizer of the event and member of the Aquarium’s Green Team. “Not only can individuals safely dispose of their personal electronic equipment, but they can do so knowing that this recovers valuable materials, conserves virgin resources, eliminates waste in landfills, and results in lower environmental emissions.”

Acceptable personal electronic recyclable items include:

• Personal computers and laptops

• Telephones, cell phones and PDA’s

• Printers

• Circuit boards and components

• Monitors and flat screens

• Fax machines

• Televisions smaller than 32”

• Stereo equipment and game systems

Regular recycling materials such as newspapers, bottles and cans will also be accepted.

Vice-President and TFC Recycling owner Michael “Recycle” Benedetto said,” We are a proud sponsor of this e-cycling event because it supports the Aquarium’s mission of conservation and helps the community to sustain its valuable resources.”

The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center is among the first attractions in the state to become certified as a Virginia Green Attraction. Visit for more information.
