Environmentally-friendly NCAA event to recycle electronic items

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Officials organizing the 2015 NCAA Men’s Final Four were hoping to make the event as environmentally-friendly as possible.

An electronic recycling event held Saturday at the Lucas Oil Stadium’s south lot was one of ten sustainability initiatives organized by the NCAA and Indiana Host Committee.

All basketball fans and Indianapolis residents were encouraged to bring any unwanted electronic items to the free NCAA recycling event.

Items that were taken at the event included computer components; hard drives, monitors, scanners, and keyboards, home electronics that included TV radios, CD and DVD players, small home and office appliances that included fax machines, copiers, microwaves, toasters, printers, and even gaming equipment, like batteries and consoles.

Hazardous, bio-hazardous and radioactive materials were not accepted at the event.
