recycle

Looking to recycle old electronics that have stacked up around the house or in storage over the years? We are again hosting an E-Cycling Event to recycle household and personally owned electronic waste, in partnership with Goodwill, TFC and the City of Virginia Beach Waste Management team. The event will be January 28 from 9am to Noon in the east parking lot Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center.

Items we will accept:

Electronics

Goodwill and the Aquarium will collect general electronics recycling such as personal computers, cell phones, printers, fax machines, televisions (except for tubes/CRTs), and stereo equipment.

Hazardous Household Waste

The City of Virginia Beach’s Waste Management department will collect household hazardous wastes for proper disposal, such as batteries, automotive fluids, pool chemicals, fertilizers, fire extinguishers, and light bulbs.

Standard Recycling

TFC will be available to take in other general recyclable items.

The event is free to the public, but donations are appreciated and will go to the Aquarium’s Green Team and their efforts promoting sustainable practices.

Please note that prescription drugs will not be accepted for recycling at the event this year; however, prescriptions may be dropped off for recycling at any Virginia Beach police precinct throughout the year.

We are collecting personal-use items only and not from businesses at this time.

Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center is located at 717 General Booth Boulevard Virginia Beach, VA 23451. Call 757.385.0274 or visit www.virginiaaquarium.com/plan-your-visit/events/e-cycling-event for more information.
