Community Electronics Recycling Days
Saturday, September 29, 2018 – 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Mount Saint Joseph University – West Parking Lot, 5701 Delhi Road
The Environmental Action Committee of Mount St. Joseph University and the Oak Hills School District are proud to sponsor community electronics recycling days. There are no residency requirements to drop off items and ANY item with an electrical cord will be accepted. This includes all TV’s (any size), refrigerators and all other household appliances (microwaves, washers, vacuum cleaners, etc.), cell phones, game systems, ipods, blackberries, MP3 players, digital cameras, GPS units, e-readers, all computers and related accessories (such as keyboards, printers, portable hard drives, and scanners), VCR/DVD/CD players, fax machines, copiers, surge protectors, power cables and charging cords, electronic wiring, and satellite components.
A $15 donation is requeted for each small cathode ray tube (CRT) TV/monitor dropped off and a $25 donation is requested for each large TV (consoles, large flat screens, and rear projection TV’s). For those without TV’s to drop off, a $10 donation is requested per vehicle. These donations help to defray both disposal fees for the hazardous waste components of the items to be recycled and transportation costs.
RecycleForce, a non-profit from Indianapolis, will de-manufacture these items and shred all hard drives to address any privacy concerns. The plastics and metals are then collected, packaged and sold to build new components, while all toxic elements, such as lead and mercury, will be disposed of properly to avoid environmental contamination. RecycleForce provides transitional jobs to formerly incarcerated people helping them to rebuild their lives and increase their chances of sustained future employment.
