On Saturday, Sept. 25, community members and businesses once again came to Norwood-Fontbonne Academy to recycle electronic waste. We collected 20,236 pounds of computers, TVs, small appliances, peripherals and other electronics that will be responsibly recycled instead of ending up in a landfill or being sent to a developing nation. Since 2009, we have collected almost 100 tons of electronic waste!
We would like to thank the following people who helped make this event, organized by Green in Chestnut Hill (GRinCH) and the Weavers Way Environment Committee, such an amazing success:
- Norwood-Fontbonne for donating the use of their driveway.
- eforce Compliance of Southwest Philadelphia (eforcecompliance.com) for their responsible recycling services.
- Our volunteers.
- All of the community members and businesses who came to recycle their electronic waste. (We especially appreciate everyone's patience as they waited in line, and we're working on ways to reduce waiting times.)
Many people also made donations to support community environmental projects. Thank you!
