Saturday, Jan. 24, at the South Beach Comedy Festival in Miami, FL., Comedy Central will host an electronics recycling event in conjunction with its eco-social initiative, Address The Mess. According to Comedy Central, discarded electronics contribute to over 70 percent of the toxins found in our nation’s landfills.

This year, E-COMB & SIR International will be on hand in the front drive-way of The Fillmore at the Jackie Gleason Theatre (where the festival is being held) to help participants “Scrap Your Crap” and “Save the Planet” from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Acceptable items include:

  • Computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (like keyboards)
