E-Waste Not, Want Not For Hart District Schools

E_waste_copy_copyE-Waste Not, Want Not.

That update to the tried and true idiom has never been more appropriate than now when electronic waste recycling can be used to help raise money for schools.

This Saturday, Golden Valley High School will be holding an Electronic Waste Recycling Event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school parking lot at 27051 Robert C. Lee Pkwy.

“E-Waste events provide local residents the opportunity to properly dispose of electronic waste, while supporting many excellent public school programs,” said Gail Pinsker, Community Liaison Officer, William S. Hart Union School District.”

Proceeds from this E-Waste event will benefit student recognition and campus beautification programs at Golden Valley High School.

Several Hart District schools plan free Electronic Waste Recycling events throughout the year as school fundraisers and to support a reduction in E-Waste that is currently a major contributor to landfills.

“Hart School District students care about the environment and want to help protect it for future generations,” Pinsker said.

E-Waste or electronic waste is any consumer electronic equipment that has reached its “end-of-life” or “end-of-usage”, whether in full or non-working condition. It includes most electronics or electric appliances with a cord or circuit board.

Currently, 56% of American households have functional e-products that they no longer use. Seventy percent of heavy metals, and 40 percent of lead and mercury contents found in today’s landfills come from E-Waste. Additionally, recent federal mandates require that television stations switch from analog format to digital format, which makes many televisions obsolete.

Electronics that will be accepted include:

• Televisions: All Sizes

• Computer Monitors: All Sizes

• LCDs and All other Flat screens: All Sizes

• PCs – CPUs
