The City of Alamo has partnered with RDA Technologies of Brownsville to expand our recycling capabilities with a new Electronic Waste (E-Scrap) program beginning in August 2015. The program will allow residents to turn in various electronics to the city where they will be safely recycled, providing a safer and cleaner city for all.
The program is one of many new green initiatives created by the City of Alamo in an effort to promote a more eco-friendly and sustainable city. The City of Alamo is dedicated to always improving and this initiative is one of many.
Starting August 1st, the city will be accepting electronics to be recycled as part of the new program. Items will be collected at the city recycling center located at 411 N. Tower Road in Alamo. RDA Technologies will be providing the tools to properly collect, package and dispose of the waste material. The items will be broken down and safely disposed of while important parts are recycled for future use.
The items that will be accepted for recycling are:
- Flat screen monitors
- Cable/satellite boxes
- Power surge protectors
- DVD/Blu-Ray/CD players
- Printers and copiers
- Microwave ovens
- Extension cords and splitters
- Circuit boards
- Computer components
- Game consoles
- Ink cartridges/ toners
Items that will not be accepted include CRT monitors, CRT TVs, alkaline batteries, radioactive equipment, light bulbs, fluorescent lights, plastics, paper, cardboard, wood, glass, oil and leaking materials.
The City of Alamo will continue to be at the forefront of green initiatives to improve the city and the lives of its residents. With the help of citizens, the city hopes to continue making Alamo one of the more desirable communities in the Valley through eco-friendliness and openness.
