Bring Your Unwanted Electronics to the Zoo on April 5

The Buffalo Zoo’s Earth Smart Squad is partnering with Sunnking Inc. to host an electronics recycling collection event.
The collection will take place on Saturday, April 5 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Zoo’s main parking lot off of Parkside Ave.

The Earth Smart Squad wants you to keep the planet in mind while you’re doing your spring cleaning. Electronic waste shouldn’t be thrown out with household trash. Some items may contain materials that are harmful to the environment, and most items can actually be recycled. Electronics recycling facilities are able to dispose of electronic waste in an environmentally responsible way.
Items that will NOT be accepted include batteries, and large appliances.
Anyone who brings their unwanted electronics to the Zoo on April 5 will receive a coupon for $1 off Zoo admission.

The Buffalo Zoo’s Earth Smart Squad’s mission is to be leaders in sustainability by inspiring our organization to reduce its carbon footprint, while empowering the community to engage in green practices.

Want to know what happens to your old electronics when they’re disposed of properly? Here’s a video about how SunnKing recycles electronics!
