ROANOKE, Virginia – If you have old phones, printers, computers, or other electronic devices collecting dust around your home, we are working on how to dispose of them safely for you.

For the first time, the Carilion clinic is organizing a driving electronics recycling event this weekend.

If you throw these items in the trash and they go to the landfill, it can lead to air and soil pollution, leading to major health problems.

“It’s part of our sustainability agenda,” Sara Wohlford, sustainability director of the Carilion Clinic. “We always want to encourage our staff, our employees and our community at large to take care of the environment not only at work, but at home and we think this is a very good way to support the community to do so. . “

The drive-through event takes place this Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Riverside Campus parking lot located at 3 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016.
