TUSTIN, Calif.--(America Recycles Day on November 15th, California public and private schools will offer a viable solution for communities to rid their homes and businesses of electronic waste in an environmentally safe and responsible manner. As schools are faced with budget cuts and programs that are underfunded, this challenge is set to raise over $100,000 for school. Hundreds of schools throughout the State of California will partner with All Green Electronics Recycling for a Million Pound E-Waste Challenge beginning in November and running through the end of December. All Green, an e-Stewards Certified company, is partnering with schools to provide a safe and convenient way for communities to dispose of their unwanted and unused electronics and raise money for school programs. Schools can still register to participate in this fundraising effort by visiting www.allgreenrecycling.com and students can even register to hold their own small collection efforts.)--As part of a statewide effort to celebrate
“We are thrilled to host our second annual Million Pound E-Waste Challenge”
“We are thrilled to host our second annual Million Pound E-Waste Challenge,” said All Green CEO Arman Sadeghi. “Students, parents, teachers, and administrators are all in support of the e-waste challenge as it provides an easy and viable way to fundraise for school programs. Statewide budget cuts are making it difficult to keep school programs running, and the Million Pound E-Waste Challenge offers schools the opportunity to raise funds for these programs while keeping e-Waste from being shipped to developing nations for dumping.”
All Green Electronics Recycling will partner with public and private schools K-12 in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Corona, Fresno, Bakersfield, San Jose, San Francisco, Sacramento and Stockton.
Last year, All Green donated more than $100,000 back to California public and private schools. Roughly 60 public and private schools are already signed up to participate in this year’s statewide fundraiser, Sadeghi said, adding that All Green is still accepting applications from schools that wish to participate in the e-waste fundraiser.
Each participating school will host an e-waste drive to collect computers, monitors, laptops, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, cell phones, mp3 players, ink toner cartridges, printers, microwaves, cables and wires, calculators and any small or portable electronics. Because All Green specializes in IT Asset Disposition and Data Destruction services for corporations, schools can dramatically increase their fundraising effort by getting local businesses involved. Companies can donate their IT equipment to the school of their choice by visiting www.allgreenrecycling.com or calling (800) 780-0347.
All items collected at the roundup will be responsibly processed in North America with a zero-landfill policy.
