Mozart’s Café will host a regular event to collect electronic waste (“e-waste”), outdated technology and small appliances that need to be recycled. This prevents toxic chemicals from entering landfills and then seeping into the environment by way of the air and groundwater.
Co-sponsor Cindy Dunigan, realtor for Dunigan Real Estate Group and e-Merge Real Estate, talks about the way sponsor partnership for the event came about. “Eliah Thomas of Recycle Girl asked me to be a sponsor for her monthly e-waste collections. I immediately jumped on board and said it would be great to find a regular place to hold the event. Anand Saha, owner of Mozart’s, was gracious to offer their parking lot for us to hold the event.” She continues, “I believe awareness breeds action and I want to make it easier for folks to recycle their e-waste. Many of us recycle paper, plastic and glass, and the next step is e-waste.”
Collections are the first Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning December 7. A $10 disposal fee is required for CRT computer monitors and TVs.
Location: 4784 N. High St. For more information, email Cindy.Dunigan@e-Merge.com.
