LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue University is collecting electronics and donating them to Oscar Winski to help the environment.
Oscar Winski collects electronic devices the second Saturday of every month.
Business Development Manager Ben Evans works at Oscar Winski and said recycling is the safest way to dispose of electronics.
"We definitely recommend that you do not throw away electronics," Evans said. "It could contain hazardous materials that may end up in a landfill and harm the environment."
The final recycling event with Purdue will be on Saturday, March 31 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the circle drive outside Young Hall on Purdue's campus. That's 155 South Grant Street in West Lafayette.
Information on accepted electronics and the location for the event can be found on Oscar Winski's website.
