Community members, businesses and residents from surrounding communities are encouraged to recycle their unwanted electronic items at Andrews University’s annual recycling event. The recycling event will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 3–7 p.m. at the Transportation building on the campus of Andrews University. Green Earth Electronics Recycling will be operating the event.
Accepted items include computers, laptops, monitors, TVs, telephones, cameras, DVD players, cords/cables, printers, toner cartridges, cell phones, refrigerators, air conditioners, appliances, car batteries and any other electronic items or items with a cord. All hard drives are wiped to Department of Defense specifications or shredded. Due to the hazardous nature of CRT glass, there is a small recycling fee of $5 for CRT computer monitors and $10 for tube televisions.
Green Earth Electronics, headquartered in St. Joseph, Mich., is a company whose focus is to keep unwanted electronics out of the landfill by using the best practices in information destruction and domestic recycling. Their services include corporate and institutional pickups as well as community drop-off events for households. For more information visit www.GreenEarth1.com.
