Keep Bossier Beautiful is proud to offer residents the opportunity to safely recycle old electronics free of charge at the E-Waste recycling event on March 26th.

Many of us have an old cell phone, tablet, or computer that we are no longer using but don’t know what to do with it. Keep Bossier Beautiful is happy to partner with Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council (CACRC) to recycle your device. CACRC (cacra.com) is the only R2 Certified Electronics Recycler in the state of Louisiana.

Bring your electronic devices to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office Substation located at 2510 Viking Drive in Bossier City on Saturday, March 26th from 10:00-2:00.

We want to provide you with a safe way to dispose of unused electronics and to help you take care of our environment. There is no fee to recycle your items at this event.

For more information contact Lynn Bryan at LBryan@KeepBossierBeautiful.com.

About CACRC

The Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council is a nonprofit committed to electronic scrap reduction by providing recycled computers and equipment to schools, nonprofits, and low-income families through the generous contributions of supporters.
The nonprofit safely manages and recycles electronics according to international level standards set by the Responsible Recycling Practices program. This title was achieved after nine months of adhering to industry standards set by the R2 program, which includes data security safeguards. R2 is one of only two accredited certification standards that exist for electronics recyclers, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website. The CACRC is the only organization in Louisiana that implements a rigorous “Reuse, Recover, and Dispose of” material management strategy by following downstream material until the end of life product.
