An annual e-cycle event that benefits Metro Denver Crime Stoppers is a way to get rid of hard-to-recycle electronics safely and cheaply. The 9News E-Cycle event is Saturday, September 9 at Coors Field from 7 a.m. to noon in Parking Lot A. Most items are taken for FREE, with the hope that you will make a donation to Crime Stoppers, a non-profit organization that runs on donations that are used to pay rewards to anonymous tipsters who help solve crime in our communities.
There is $10 charge for CRT monitors; $30 for CRT and Flat televisions and console, projection or DLP TVs are $70 (donation centers don’t take them and they are hard to recycle). Here’s a list of what they will and will not accept.
Stereo and video equipment
Home or car audio
Cabling & electronic wiring
Televisions (except the ones listed above)
All others storage media
Here’s what they won’t accept: exposed TVs, air conditioners, car batteries, light bulbs, anything with Freon and paper (the Shred-a-Thon is in May).
Enter the parking lot at Park Avenue West and Wazee Street. Chances are there will be a line, so be prepared to wait.
