JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's Earth Day! Billions of people across the world participate in this annual celebration of the planet. 

E-Waste Day is an annual Earth Day event held Friday at the Mississippi Farmers Market in Jackson.  It's hosted by the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership and Keep Jackson Beautiful.  It offers people a convenient way to recycle their old documents and electronics at no charge.

Dozens of old computers, smart phones, tablets, TVs and other electronics were collected during the event.

Magnolia Data Solutions will recycle the items in an environmentally friendly way.

Iron Mountain also collected and shredded paper documents free to participants.

Earth Day began on April 22, 1970, which is said to have launched the modern environmental movement.  For more details, click here.
