We’re hosting another electronics collection event with Office Recycling Solutions in the spirit of Earth Day 2013! Come drop off old iPods, monitors, or whatever else you have lying around your home or office! Your efforts will help cut communities’ dumping costs AND raise money for a worthy cause - a small donation per item is highly encouraged. All proceeds from this drive are to benefit First Lutheran Church of East Greenwich.
There will be trucks set up in the parking lot to receive your e-waste. A shredding truck provided by Affordable Shredding Inc. will also be available at the drive, offering document shredding services for $.50 per pound. A percentage of this fee will be donated.
DID YOU KNOW?
Even though most electronic products are considered hazardous waste when we go to dispose of them, the EPA reports that only about 25% of electronics ready for end-of-life management end up being properly recycled. Through this drive, we hope to provide a quick and easy way for our neighbors to recycle their old and unwanted electronics.
Do your part for Earth Day this year – come drop off your items, and help spread the word! We hope to see you there!
