Electronic equipment waste includes but is not limited to the following:Computers, computer monitors, televisions, VCR and DVD players, copiers and printers, fax machines,cordless phones and cell phones.
In order to properly dispose/recycle electronic wastes, the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe recycles all itsequipment after it has outlived its original intended usefulness and it may not be welcomed by ourdivisions for reuse. For this, the Tribe uses these measures in order to recycle electronics:
- Donation to a thrift store, non-profit, or school. (Currently Using the Blind Center of Nevada).
- Sell for re-use or sell to a buy-back program.
- Drop off at a retailer (e.g. Best Buy) that has an e-Waste recycling program.
