Mt. Diablo Recycling honors America Recycles Day with Free e-Waste Drop-Off and Compost Giveaway November 12, 2016!

Old computers, printers, televisions, cell phones and other electronic equipment don’t have to take up space in your home—they can be recycled for free on November 12 at Mt. Diablo Recycling (MDR), part of the recycling and recovery companies of Garaventa Enterprises.

Mt. Diablo Recycling’s free e-Waste event will take place on Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the MDR facility located at 1300 Loveridge Road in Pittsburg, Calif.  Anyone who drops off their e-Waste items will also receive up to two bags of compost for free. Mt. Diablo Recycling’s staff will be on hand to assist people with bulky recycling items; participants can even choose to stay in their cars during their drop-off. This free e-Waste event is being sponsored by Mt. Diablo Recycling in conjunction with America Recycles Day, an annual celebration of all things recycling taking place across the country November 15.


Mt. Diablo Recycling is one of the largest, state-of-the-art recycling centers in Northern California. MDR dedicates its facility to recycling items from most cities in East County and Central Contra Costa County. It is on the same property as Contra Costa Waste, also known as the Recycling Center & Transfer Station (RCTS). RCTS recycles tires, metals, mattresses, propane tanks, appliance and much more.
