Super Bowl Organizers, Verizon Sponsor E-Waste Recycling Event

Organizing parties of the Super Bowl and an electronics firm are teaming up for an e-waste Recycling Rally in Phoenix today.

The National Football League (NFL), Verizon Wireless and the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee are partnering to collect and recycle electronic waste. The public will be able to discard electronic devices such as computers, televisions or cell phones during the all-day event, according to an announcement for the occasion.

This marks the second year Verizon and the NFL have joined with the local Super Bowl host committee to collect and recycle e-waste. Verizon also will collect no-longer used cell phones, batteries, chargers, accessories and tables as part of its HopeLine from Verizon program, which provides support for non-profit domestic violence organizations and agencies nationwide.

The e-waste event is part of the overall environmental outreach program developed for the Super Bowl, Feb. 1.
