Electronics Spring Cleaning Competition!

ElectronicRecyclingCompetitionPoster2015 (2)Today begins a month long electronics recycling collection drive and competition in our community. Your participation will help divert electronic devices from our landfill and provide reusable electronics to community members who otherwise would not have access.

Here’s what is accepted: working or broken electronics: toys, cell phones, monitors, computer and phone cables, laptops, keyboards and mice, rechargeable batteries, hair dryers, blenders…everything from coffee makers and toasters…anything that has a cord or takes batteries!

Drop off your e-waste at:

  1. NextStep at 2101 W 10th Ave, Mondays through Saturdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the month of April and ask your donation to be the school of your choice;
  2. Collection bins at schools throughout the neighborhood. Between Monday, April 13 and Friday, April 17, you can take your donation to Camas Ridge, Charlemagne, Edgewood, Edison, Oak Hill School, Ridgeline Montessori or Roosevelt. Results of the school collections will be weighed at the end of the month and the school who collects the most wins.

Last year, the world produced nearly 54 million tons of electrical and electronic products, but only a fraction of it was reused, refurbished, or recycled. With a relatively short lifecycle, e-waste now litters dumpsites all over the world, exposing humans and the environment to toxic materials. You can make a difference by being part of the re-use/recycle alternative.
