January 2024

As the winter chill wanes and signs of spring emerge, the residents of SaddleBrooke will gear up for an annual spring-cleaning ritual. Helping to foster a cleaner and greener community, Senior Village will present the 2024 Electronics & Hazardous Waste Recycling Event on Saturday, March 30, from 9 am to noon at the MountainView Clubhouse lower parking lot. Mark your calendars now!

The event promises to be a one-stop opportunity to recycle those hard-to-dispose-of items that clutter up our homes and garages. On March 30, you’ll find a bustling hub of activity outside of the clubhouse, thanks to the efforts of nearly 20 Senior Village volunteers and partner e-waste company Suburban Miners. While HOA2 Patrol directs traffic, Senior Village volunteers will help unload vehicles and “shred” hard drives, i.e. physically destroy the hard drives of computers and tablets to ensure that the data stored on them cannot be retrieved. The cost is $20 per carload, with an additional $10 fee for flat-screen TVs and $20 for old CRT TVs.

There is a comprehensive list of items accepted, allowing residents to get rid of a wide array of household clutter responsibly:

  • Electronics that have a cord or battery, ex. phones, microwaves, answering machines, copiers
  • Computer equipment, ex. hard drives, tablets, printers, scanners, monitors (hard drives will be destroyed)
  • TVs, VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes
  • Audio equipment, stereos, amplifiers
  • Batteries
  • Fluorescent lights
  • Metal and wire
  • Motor oil
  • Paint & paint thinner
  • Pesticides, fertilizers, household cleaning chemicals
  • Phones (cell and home)
  • Toner cartridges

Items that are not accepted include books, cardboard, clothing, furniture, light bulbs, paper and propane tanks.

This annual undertaking is made possible through the collaboration of Senior Village with Suburban Miners, a family-owned e-waste facility. This marks the fourth consecutive year of partnership, highlighting the commitment to environmentally friendly disposal practices.

Mark your calendars for March 30, gather those old gadgets and paints, and head over to the MountainView Clubhouse parking lot. Senior Village has partnered with SaddleBrooke HOA2 to make a positive impact on both the community and the planet.
