Recycling Electronics!

4 May

You’ve been a great help!  In just over a week we’ve filled an entire skid with almost a dozen defunct TVs, as well as printers, desktop computers, laptops and other technology items.  The Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) is a non-profit organization that handles end-of-life electronics in a safe, secure and environmentally-sound way.  Since the program has begun, 67 million devices have been diverted from landfills, helping to recover and recycle valuable resources that can be put back into the manufacturing supply chain.

Do you have old, unused technology at home gathering dust in some corner?  Do some Spring cleanup and drop off items in the collection bins at Bakersfield P.S. in our main foyer through May 26th, without adding to landfills, helping to recycle for a cleaner tomorrow.  What is accepted?  Most unused or unwanted electronic qualify, such as: display devices, monitors, televisions, desktop computers, portable computers, computer peripherals, printing or copying or scanning and multi-function devices, telephone and telephone answering machines, cellular devices and pagers, home theatre equipment, aftermarket vehicle audio and video devices, as well as portable and home image/audio/video devices.  OES reminds everyone to wipe all drives and SIM cards before disposing of items.  For more information on protecting your privacy in disposing of electronic devices, visit here.

Please being in your old electronics and help us support a greener tomorrow!
