ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)- The Santa Ana Star Casino & Hotel teamed up with Albuquerque Computer & Electronics Recycling to help out the environment.
Organizers say keeping e-waste out of landfills and developing countries is crucial for a healthy environment. Most electronics were taken free of charge, and they even offered free data destruction.
“Today is people coming together to recycle their e-waste, to reduce that carbon footprint,” said Sam Laing with Albuquerque Computer & Electronics Recycling. “None of this stuff will end up in a landfill or any underdeveloped or developing countries.”
