E-waste recycling day set

Posted

DORSET >> Spring Electronic Recycling Day is being held at The Dorset School on Saturday, April 30 from 9 a.m. – noon. The Dorset Teachers' Association and the Dorset Energy Committee are co-hosting this event to raise money for the school's technology fund. This event is open to everyone. It is not limited to Dorset residents.

All items will be accepted free of charge. Acceptable items include computers (laptops, desktops, tablets, and servers), printers, ink and toner cartridges, monitors, UPS battery backups, stereo equipment, satellite dishes (any size), game consoles (Wii, Playstation, etc), digital cameras, cell phones, blackberries, MP3 players, and small household appliances such as toasters, fans, and hair dryers, and more. Large appliances such as stoves and ovens cannot be accepted. Monetary donations are being accepted and proceeds will go towards the school's Technology Fund.

The Dorset School will only be accepting items the day of the drive. Because of storage space and cost of removal they cannot accept any of these items prior to or after the drive.

Dorset School extends a special thank you to Good Point Recycling (www.retroworks.net) for their donation of time and manpower to help make the drive a success. Good Point Recycling is an electronic recycler based out of Middlebury that services Vermont, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island from their Vermont headquarters, and the southwest from their Arizona warehouse. From laptop credits to "e-waste" disposal, their recycling services are respected, vetted, economical, legal, and guaranteed.
