WLTX-TV Hosts E-Cycle Event for Columbia, South Carolina Community Gannett-owned WLTX-TV Columbia, S.C. recently partnered with the Richland County Solid Waste division for a day-long E-Cycle event. Viewers were invited to drop off their old TV sets, computers, microwaves and other electronics to be recycled in the WLTX-TV parking lot. A local shredding company was also onsite to dispose of sensitive documents and old tires. In total, more than 1,400 vehicles came to the station. Six tractor trailers of electronics were filled and more than 30,000 pounds of old tires were shredded. Because of WLTX-TV and this event, materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfills in the community will be recycled.
