E-Waste Collection Event

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:17 PM EDT

GUILDERLAND -- Earth Day is coming up on Monday, but an event this weekend helped to not only protect the environment - but also your Bottom Line.


CBS 6 teamed up with Tri City Rentals and eLot Electronics Recycling to trash your tech for you, at Saturday's E-Waste Collection Event.


It was held at five different area locations, including Woodlake Apartments in Guilderland.


Items collected included old televisions, batteries and light bulbs - but also things like computers and cell phones - which harm your wallet, if you're not careful.


"As technology's evolving, it's extremely easy to steal someone's identity or take information off a hard drive," says Murray Massry of Tri City Rentals. "There's a lot of third parties that will remove information off a hard drive and they won't ask for identification that matches up to that hard drive."


But in this case, rest assured.


The companies say they follow the proper regulations, making sure that all hard drives and data storage devices are disposed of, and done so the right way.


"E-lot Recycling is mandated by the state, and they will be fined if the items are not destroyed within 'x' amount of time," Massry says.


The event was free, and open to the public.
