The Earl Warren Showgrounds has been designated as E-waste collection site by the State of California. E-waste is defined as: all consumer and business electronic equipment that is near or at the end of its useful life.  These electronic devices include but are not limited to: Computers, VCRs, Fax Machines, Copiers, PDA’s, TV’s, Cell Phones and Stereos. The Cathode Ray Tubes (CTR’s or Picture Tubes), circuit boards, switches and cables contained in these products contain hazardous elements and compounds such as Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, Selenium, and Cadmium. Because of the serious public health and safety risks posed by these elements, proper disposal of e-waste has become a paramount concern for legislatures, environmentalists, and the general public at large.
