Protect your identity and the environment by bringing old electronics to Door County Habitat for Humanity Restore’s (DCHHR) free electronic-recycling event on July 19 from 9 am – 1 pm at the Brussels Community Center, 1366 Junction Road. The Town of Brussels, DCHHR, and Vintage Tech Recyclers are joining forces to bring responsible electronics recycling to Door County residents.
To assure responsible recycling, DCHHR works with e-Stewards certified recyclers like Vintage Tech Recyclers (VTR), a local electronics recycling company. VTR provides IT asset management, responsible recycling solutions, and hard drive security.
VTR ensures that all electronics are properly handled, recycled, and all hard drives are protected using NIST 800-88 compliant software wiping.
Residents are encouraged to stay in their vehicles as VTR personnel and volunteers assist in unloading material.
According to VTR, by recycling old electronic products, useful materials such as glass, plastic and metal can be re-used in the manufacture of other products. Recycling electronics minimizes the amount of hazardous waste in the landfills and the extraction of new raw materials from the earth.
