The City of Roanoke is bringing an electronics recycling event to Valley View Mall this weekend in hopes computers and other devices don’t head for landfills. Most of the electronic devices in the home contain hazardous substances like cadmium and mercury, and this weekend’s event permits those elements to be recycle and reused.
