PORTSMOUTH — The "biggest, baddest electronics recycling event the tradeport has ever seen" will be held today, June 18. The Red Hook Ale Brewery, in conjunction with local electronics recycler MetalWave, will host E-Cycle Fest 2014.

"If it plugs in or has a battery, we'll take it!" according to organizers. The event is open to all Pease International Tradeport tenants and their employees to offer a venue to safely dispose of retired information technology assets or other electronic waste.

"In doing a fair amount of research, I'm thinking it might turn out to be the largest e-cycling event the Seacoast has ever had," said Mark T. Babcock, MetalWave's director of business development. "In fact, I've yet to find any past events in the state that reported numbers even close to what we're forecasting."
