Extra Space Storage Inc. Offers Electronic-Waste Recycling at 12 Southern California Locations

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -  Extra Space Storage Inc. (NYSE: EXR) is partnering with TRI Products (www.ewaste4u.com) to provide electronic waste recycling at 12 locations spread across San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties in Southern California. Consumers can drop off their end of life electronics, where they would be recycled in a safe and secure fashion.

In 2007, 3.01 million tons of e-waste was generated in the US. Of this amount, only 410,000 tons or 13.6% was recycled, according to the EPA. The rest was trashed -- in landfills or incinerators. Mark Stanke, Divisional Vice President for Extra Space Storage states, "We realize there is a huge need for recycling efforts and we wanted to provide a solution for the local communities that we serve."

This is a free service and facilities are open Monday thru Saturday 9:30 AM - 6 PM. They will accept the following items: Computers, monitors, printers, motherboards, televisions, UPS, PDAs, networking equipment, scanners, VCR/VCD/DVD players, fax machines, entertainment systems, and phones.
