City reveals recycling campaign's newest offender

Posted: Updated:

The City of Corpus Christi’s Solid Waste Services has unveiled the third member of The Recycling Bin’s Dirty Dozen as part of their continuing Recycle Right campaign.

Her name is Ellie Tronic, and her goal is to educate the public about the proper way to recycle unwanted electronics, also known as e-waste.

According to the city, when electronics like old computers, cell phones, printers and DVD players are placed in the recycling bin, they can contaminate other good recyclables. This is because these items contain hazardous materials like mercury, lead, and toxic metals.

Keeping e-waste out of the recycling bin makes the recycling process more efficient and saves time and money.

The city says the Recycle Right campaign is designed to inform and educate the public about how and what to recycle.

More detailed information is available at cctexas.com/recycleright and on the City’s social media pages.
