Veterans building to receive benefit of e-waste donations

On Saturday, June 21, The Nevada County Consolidated Veterans Council (NCCVC) in conjunction with California Electronics Asset Recovery (CEAR) will be collecting e-waste in the parking lot of the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building (GVVMB) at 255 South Auburn Street, Grass Valley. The free drop-off will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and there will be volunteers there to help unload.

The NCCVC represents five veterans organizations in Nevada County. These are the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Marine Corps League Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Vietnam Veterans of America. The specific purpose of this e-waste collection is to fund the replacement of the original windows with new energy efficient ones.

Items that are acceptable are electronic equipment, monitors, laptops, printers, computers, TVs, cables, phones, cameras, and small household appliances. Large household appliances, furniture, hazardous material of any type, tires, batteries, fluorescent lights and water heaters are not acceptable.
