Electronic Waste Recycling Drive and

Compost Bin/Rain Barrel Sale

Saturday, June 18, 2011 from 9AM to 3PM.

Westwood Shopping Center (grassy area near All American, and the cinema)


In an effort to promote waste reduction and support North Carolina legislation prohibiting the disposal of computer equipment and televisions in North Carolina landfills which takes effect July 1, 2011, Sustainable Sandhills is partnering with Fayetteville Beautiful and the City of Fayetteville to host an electronic waste (e-waste) drive and compost bin and rain barrel sale which will be the first of its kind within the city limits.

Electronics contain many recyclable materials to include: plastics, glass, and precious metals. If not disposed of correctly, electronics can leach heavy metals, chemicals, and other materials that can harm the environmenta and our health. American Greenz, a North Carolina e-waste company, will collect, transport, and process the e-waste.

Accepted items:


computers and monitors,

computer peripherals

keyboards, printers




cellular phones

video games and game systems

Anything that operates on batteries or has a plug...

Items not accepted:

white goods (stoves, refigerators, air conditioners, washer/dryer, etc)

radioactive material



CRT televisions larger than 27"

In addition to the e-waste event, we have also partnered with Norseman Environmental to offer the Earth MachineTM Backyard Compost bins and SYSTERN rain barrels at deeply discounted rates ($47/$58 respectively) on a first come, first serve basis, while supplies last.

The Earth Machine is a user friendly compost machine which allows residents to easily compost food scraps and turn them into a useful soil amendment. Rain barrels will help you reduce the expense of outdoor watering, as they allow you to harvest and store rain water to be used for watering your flowers or shrubs. A drip hose can be attached to make watering your plants low cost and low input.
