Camelot Moving To Become E-waste Drop Spot

khts_givingbackCamelot Moving and Storage has become a new e-waste drop-off location through an arrangement with GREENspot DROPoff—and local charities and schools can register to profit from this venture.

GREENspot DROPoff describes e-waste as anything with circuitry, excluding appliances, which is not allowed in the trash, and needs to be properly recycled and repurposed by state law. Common examples of e-waste are televisions, fax machines, all computer components, DVD players, radios, and cables and cords. Cell phones are also now accepted.

Billy Kornfeld, owner of Camelot, was approached about the idea of becoming a dropoff location at a networking meeting.

“I’m always looking for ways to make our company more green,” he said.  “When I learned about the $1 donation per item to schools, that made the Green spot program sound even better.”

Each time someone drops off e-waste at a GREENspot DROPoff location, they have the opportunity to write in a charity name in the “referred by” line.  GREENspot DROPoff will then pay that group $1 for each eligible e-waste item. Any interested Santa Clarita school or nonprofit should contact fundraising@greenspotdropoff.org or visit http://greenspotdropoff.org to learn more about this program.

E-waste can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The Camelot office is located at 28040 Industry Drive, west of Interstate 5 and just north of the 126 freeway.

While e-waste only makes up about two percent of our landfills, GREENspot DROPoff said it contributes to about 70 percent of toxic waste. E-waste leaches mercury and other toxins in our soil, which then find their way into the water supplies.

Family-owned and operated Camelot Moving and Storage (http://www.camelotmovers.com/)  began in April 1986 in Newhall, California, with one small moving truck and a few packing supplies.  Now a leader in the Santa Clarita Valley, the company offers local and long-distance moves, short-term and long-term storage, self storage, commercial and residential moves of all types, and packing service and supplies.  Always green conscious, Camelot packing supplies – boxes and packing paper – are 70-100 percent recycled materials.

The Camelot family has built strong client relationships in its 25 years providing customized service to its clientele.  Any questions about the e-waste program can be directed to Kornfeld at 661-255-3112.
