BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Earth Day is coming up this weekend, and the Challenger Learning Center is ready to kicks things off!

Monday is the first day for their E-Waste recycling event.

Instead of holding a one day event, residents from any community can drop off their E-Waste through Friday, April 28.

If you have items such as televisions, cell phones, laptops, or computer accessories to get rid of, you take them to the North Coast Services collection warehouse on Emerson Mill Road in Hampden.

“It goes along with our community mission of just providing things for the community and STEM events and just that idea that we’re recycling and not just dumping into landfill, and that’s what we’re trying to teach our community and just giving you that opportunity, because a lot of times people don’t know what to do with it and sometimes they just don’t dispose of it properly. And so that gives you an opportunity for proper disposal,” said Jennifer Nash, flight director for the Challenger Learning Center.

As Challenger does not benefit from these recycled materials, they will gratefully accepted donations for this event.
