Saturday, June 5, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., DeMond's SuperValu Parking Lot, Douglas
Put Saturday, June 5, 2010 on your calendars! A free E-WASTE RECYCLING OPPORTUNITY is coming back to Saugatuck-Douglas for a second time. Last year we collected close to 9,000 pounds. This year we want to get the business and residential community involved in recycling. We are setting a goal to collect 15,000 pounds! Electronic waste is a growing concern to our environment. When put in landfills, e-waste can leak harmful toxins into our soil and water. You can help make a difference on June 5.
All Saints' Episcopal Church in Saugatuck is partnering with West Michigan Creation Care to bring e-waste recycler, Comprenew Environmental, to hold another drop-off collection in DeMonds Grocery parking lot for many business and household electronic items as well as computer components and accessories.
You clean your attics, basements, or garages of your e-waste and bring it to us to load in a huge Haworth trailer. All is free to you with the exception of a $10 donation for each television. TVs have dangerous chemicals that need to be processed in a much more rigorous manner.
Lists of appropriate items for recycling will be available in local churches, stores and city offices. Please help us reach the 15,000-pound goal, and clean out those old items taking up space!
