For the third time since the California State Fair’s cancellation, SMUD is partnering with Cal Expo, Fox 40 and iHeartRadio to give back to the community with a community e-waste drive. Businesses and residents can bring their e-waste to the Cal Expo Main Gate and drop it off free of charge. Proceeds benefit the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps, Sacramento’s largest education and workforce training program.
Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps works to enrich the lives of young adults by providing a development program, integrating education, job skills training and work experience on conservation projects and service opportunities that benefit the entire region.
