LIBERTY – Back by popular demand, Sullivan County’s 4-H Program is adding a November 5th-6th E-Scrap recycling event to its autumn calendar. Partnering once more with Advanced Recovery, Inc. and the Sullivan County Division of Solid Waste, the 4-H Program is working to raise funds as well as awareness for educational programs.
Friday, November 5th is set to collect E-Scrap from businesses, schools, municipalities and institutions, marking Sullivan County’s second ever commercial electronic scrap recycling initiative. The following day, Saturday, November 6th is devoted solely to the collection of residentially-generated electronics from homes. Collection will take place at the Cornell Cooperative Extension building on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
Commercial E-Scrap generators must pre-register by contacting Bob Travers at Advanced Recovery 845-858-8809 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event. Organizations will be invoiced $10 per monitor, laptop, LCD or plasma television; all other electronic equipment will be accepted free of charge.
Cost to the general public will be $15 per carload of residentially generated materials such as monitors, printers, keyboards, VCRs, batteries, cell phones, terminals, cables, fax machines, radios, modems, CPUs, telephones, TVs, and stereos. Significant savings can be made by families taking advantage of this opportunity and a portion of the proceeds benefits Sullivan County 4-H.
“E-Waste” often contains hazardous materials. Advanced Recovery is a recycling company that will collect the materials, salvage for reuse or otherwise recycle for recovery plastics, glass, ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Each component of your electronic equipment will be reused or remarketed with no hazardous materials being sent to your landfills.
For information on how to participate or help promote this noteworthy event, please contact Marylin Russell in the 4-H office. Flyers available on http://www.sullivancce.org/.
