A parking lot at College of the Canyons played host to an assorted collection of computers, televisions, vacuum cleaners and even some Christmas lights Saturday as a steady stream of cars rolled by to drop off old electronics for recycling, and raise some money for Hart High School in the process.

Computer monitors were stacked high on pallets. Televisions, from dusty wood-paneled models to immense big-screens were in ready supply.

The event was coordinated by the Hart Parent Organization with Greenview Resource Management Inc., in partnership with the city of Santa Clarita, to provide a place where people could safely dispose of unwanted or electronic devices to keep them from making their way into landfills.

“It’s been wonderful,” said Amy Daniels, president of the Hart Parent Organization. “The response from the community has just been so positive.”

Daniels said tons of electronics can be dropped off during each event, adding up to a fundraising haul of up to $10,000 for the Hart Parent Organization, which in turn can help fund services at Hart High School.

“We love that we can provide this service to the city of Santa Clarita and can help citywide as well,” she said.

The Hart Parent Organization holds several e-waste disposal events throughout the year, but Daniels said the January one is typically the most popular.

“Everybody has stuff they need to get rid of after Christmas and the holidays,” she said.

The event continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at College of the Canyons.
