Need to toss old laptops or dated cell phones? The Boys & Girls Club in Costa Mesa is recycling used electronic equipment to raise money.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, residents can drop off their unwanted electronics, such as TVs, monitors, video game systems, printers or fax machines at the clubhouse. Batteries, light bulbs and appliances will not be accepted.

Electronic Waste Recycling, or eWaste, is hosting the event for the Boys & Girls Club and thinks it is important for people to come out and support the nonprofit's fundraising efforts.


"Funds are harder to come by…," Chris Plain of eWaste said. "A lot of money now comes from these fundraisers."
