SAN DIEGO (CNS) - SeaWorld is accepting electronic junk Saturday and those who drop off some will get a half-off admission coupon.
Old televisions, computers, stereos and electronic gadgets that aren't supposed to go into the regular garage can be brought to the east parking lot at the marine park, starting at 8 a.m.
The recycling event is SeaWorld's eighth in the past five years, and about 275,000 pounds of electronic waste has been collected, raising more than $27,000 for local and national conservation programs, a SeaWorld spokesman said.
The money raised this year will benefit the San Diego chapter of The Conservation Fund.
"It's important that we all do our part in protecting the environment," SeaWorld President John Reilly said. "Our annual e-recycling event is not only a great way to ensure your used electronics material is disposed of properly, it will also raise money for an outstanding conservation organization that helps protect wild lands and wildlife here in San Diego."
Only electronic devices will be accepted.
Anyone with a California ID is welcome to drop off electronic waste. All donors will get a coupon for half off on admission, good for up to six people.
