Citizen Revolt! E-Recycling at the U | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Citizen Revolt! E-Recycling at the U



E-Recycling has come, or is coming…this Wednesday, and just in time for Earth Day! What is e-recycling you ask? Why it’s the careful handling and disposal of all your once-modern amenities, from TVs to video-game consoles to even cell phones. Why should you e-recycle you ask? Because ipods make mother earth cry-- If they’re not probably disposed of that is. Thanks to the U’s Office of Sustainability, the Recycling Coalition of Utah and the Salt Lake City Division of Sustainability and the Environment, all students and Salt Lake residents can drop off for free their e-waste items.

E-waste is the fastest growing stream of waste in the country with an estimated 3 billion units to be scrapped by 2010. So let’s face it folks you can’t just throw this shit away because electronic waste is chock full of harmful toxins that will bleed right into the ground water. So don’t miss this opportunity clean up your e-waste...OK? You'll probably feel so good about it you might just reward yourself and go buy all new modern gadgetry and technology. Go ahead, you've earned it.
