The eco-friendly restaurant is collecting E-waste at 12 locations in North Texas on Saturday, Oct. 21.

Oct. 19, 2017

If you’ve been hoarding old computers and discarded appliances you intended to recycle, this Saturday a local business is making it easy to drop off e-waste.

Dallas-based Snappy Salads is hosting its free semi-annual electronic recycling collection at 12 of its stores across DFW. Locations include Dallas, Fort Worth, Frisco, Irving, Lewisville, Plano, Richardson and Southlake. (See locations and hours below.)

The eco-friendly restaurant chain is partnering with Recycle Revolution, a Dallas-based company and finalist in the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards, to coordinate the recycling of collected items using the e-Stewards certification program.

“Snappy Salads is deeply committed to limiting any negative impact we have on the environment,” said Chris Dahlander, founder and CEO of Snappy Salads. “Our last roundup collected more than 19,000 pounds of electronic waste to be repurposed into a new life. We anticipate October’s event will bring the grand total collected since we began the program in 2013 to more than 50 tons!”

Anything with an on/off switch including computers, cell phones, televisions, stereos, copiers, gaming systems, calculators, lamps, and flashlights, as well as small appliances and batteries, may be dropped off.

More than 80 percent of e-waste is trashed in landfills and incinerators where it can contaminate our air, water and land. The dismantling and recycling of electronic products promotes the conservation of natural resources and minimizes pollution.
