Bridge’s 3rd e-Waste Recycling Drive – Another Green Success!
Bridge collected 7,451 pounds of electronics and raised $1,986 to benefit Oceans of Grace, First Lutheran Church of East Greenwich
Bridge Technical Solutions is proud to announce that last Saturday, April 14, Bridge recycled 3 ¾ tons of electronic waste, nearly doubling the amount of e-waste they collected during a similar event last fall.
By the end of the drive, there were 7,451 pounds of TVs, computers, monitors and other electronic waste in the trucks. Due to the tremendous turnout, Bridge ended up needing a second truck just to transport all of the electronics. Bridge would like to thank all their community members who made this event such a huge success. What a big win for the environment in the spirit of Earth Day 2012!
Joe Devine, Partner at Bridge, commented, "It was encouraging to see so many faces, both familiar and new, turn out for our event. We love bringing together our community for a cause that Bridge continues to support."
Bridge would also like to thank Office Recycling Solutions who not only donated the use of their trucks and their employees’ time but also assumed the responsibility of taking away and sustainably disposing all of the e-waste. Bridge is also grateful to Texas Roadhouse of Warwick for hosting the drive in their parking lot.
In addition to all of the e-waste that will now be properly recycled, Bridge collected $986 in donations. Bridge matched $1,000 to this amount and donated a total amount of $1,986 to the First Lutheran Church of East Greenwich to fund Oceans of Grace, First Lutheran’s outreach ministry.
