Bridge Technical Talent is proud to announce that on Saturday, April 26, 2014, they recycled 4 tons of electronic waste, and shredded 507 lbs of sensitive papers which will now be recycled as well.
Members from the community were lined up at the Texas Roadhouse parking lot in Warwick, even on a cold and rainy spring day, to drop off their e-Waste. The drive gathered 7,892 pounds of electronics and 500 pounds of paper that will now be properly recycled. A huge thank you is owed to Affordable Shredding, Inc and Office Recycling Solutions, who partnered with Bridge on drive number seven, not only donating the use of their trucks and employees’ time but also taking on the responsibility of sustainably disposing of all the e-Waste collected through the event.
Through this drive, Bridge raised $545 in donations to Oceans of Grace, the outreach ministry of First Lutheran Church of East Greenwich, which will graciously be matched by the Alan Shawn Feinstein Foundation . The funds will be invested directly back into the community, as Oceans of Grace supports local people in need through outreach activities revolving around the three major themes of food, clothing and shelter.
Bridge’s biannual e-Waste Drive tradition helps reduce the amount of hazardous electronic waste that ends up in community landfills, cutting communities’ dumping costs and protecting the environment while raising money for a good cause. Bridge plans to host their eighth e-Waste Drive on Saturday, October 18, 2014, same time and place. Bridge would like to thank all of the participants from the community who helped make this event such a big win for the environment in the spirit of Earth Day 2014!
