WASHINGTON, DC, WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2024 / -- Getting rid of old electronic equipment is simple in Ward 8 this week. Reverse Logistics Group (RLG) will be in Ward 8 on Friday, June 14 from 10 AM to 2 PM, to collect and recycle unwanted electronic devices.

RLG is a representative of some of the world’s most popular electronics brands, including Acer, Canon, HP, Lenovo, Microsoft, Samsung, and VTech. In conjunction with the District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and Environment, RLG has planned 32 free consumer electronics recycling events throughout all eight wards of the District in 2024. Events are open to District residents, small businesses and small non-profits.

The collection vehicle will be located near the Barry Farm Recreation Center, on the corner of Sumner Road SE & Wade Road SE. Residents are welcome to bring electronic items in as-is condition to the truck – RLG will take it from there. By recycling together, RLG and communities in the District keep e-waste from going to landfills.

Items accepted for recycling include: computers, tablets, monitors, TVs, desktop printers, mice, keyboards, video game consoles, cell phones, and more.

Recyclers are e-Steward certified - that means, they use the best practices for safely recycling used electronic equipment.

RLG Director of Compliance Services, Andriana Kontovrakis is pleased that RLG is again able to offer free electronics recycling events in the District. “We can all do our part to recycle electronics and create a more circular economy.”

RLG also invites community members to reach out to for digital materials that promote these events and help increase recycling rates.
