McDonalds and Sacramento-based California Electronic Asset Recovery are partnering for a Friday-Saturday electronic waste donation drive to help benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California.
Volunteers from CEAR will be at five Sacramento area McDonalds restaurants to collect donated e-waste, including televisions, small kitchen appliances and mobile phones.
Donations will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the following locations: 2331 Broadway, Sacramento; 8282 Laguna Blvd., Elk Grove; 2400 Sunrise Blvd., Rancho Cordova; 7632 Sunrise Blvd., Citrus Heights and 6612 Folsom-Auburn Road, Folsom.
Officials said individuals donating items such as VCRs, DVD players or any other electronic item that requires a cord will receive a coupon for a free, small McCafe Smoothie that can be redeemed at local McDonalds restaurants.
Other items accepted at the sites include video game consoles, digital cameras, computer keyboards/mice and stereo equipment. CEAR said it cannot accept batteries, lights and large items such as refrigerators, washers or dryers.
Officials said CEAR will donate 10 cents from every pound collected to the regional Ronald McDonald House Charities.
