Bridge Sponsors e-Recycling Drive for Second Year in a Row
East Greenwich, R.I., September 2, 2011 – Saturday, September 24, from 9am until 12 noon is collection day for old electronic devices at the Texas Roadhouse parking lot on Division Road in Warwick, RI.
Most electronic products used in the workplace and homes contain hazardous substances such as lead and mercury. When these products reach the end of their useful lives or become obsolete, some are considered hazardous waste. Hazardous waste may not be discarded in the regular trash! A great option for disposal of this waste is to bring these items to our collection day and help the environment while raising money for a worthy cause!
First Lutheran Church in conjunction with Office Recycling Solutions and Bridge Technical Solutions will host a computer and electronics collection event on Saturday, September 24 to benefit First Lutheran. A minimum $1 fee per small item is highly encouraged with a higher fee ($5 or $10) for larger items. Bridge Technical Solutions will sponsor the event and cover the fee for those not able to make a donation.
Those with old unwanted electronics may take them to the Texas Roadhouse parking lot in Warwick from 9am until 12 noon. There will be trucks set up to receive your e-waste in the parking lot. This simple action will keep electronics out of the regular trash, cut communities’ dumping costs and raise money for a good cause!
Current figures compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicate that more than 2 million tons of electronic waste winds up in landfills each year, so join us in our electronics recycling program.
This will be the second year that Bridge Technical Solutions has sponsored the recycling program to benefit First Lutheran Church. Office Recycling Solutions has collected almost 200 tons of electronic junk for recycling and keeping the stuff out of our environment.
CPUs/computers, servers, keyboards, spare computer parts, monitors, laptops, network equipment, mice, laser printers, routers, radios, scanners, fax machines, UPSs, cables, cords and wires, aluminum, copper, cell phones, inks/laser cartridges, TVs, MP3 players, home audio equipment (receivers/speakers), car audio equipment (decks/speakers), DVD players, VCRs, cameras and telephones are all accepted.
