E-Waste Drive on April 27!

It’s that time of the year again … the Penn Charter Electronics Waste Drive is back! On Sunday, April 27th from 10:00 - 2:00, we’ll be collecting:

  • “Anything with a Plug” (electronic devices, appliances, cables, peripherals, etc.)
  • dead batteries
  • CFL light bulbs

As you know, these items not only contain materials that can be reused or re-purposed in new electronics, but they also have toxic substances that need to be disposed of in an environmentally conscious way. The collection will be handled by E-Force Compliance, a Philadelphia company that specializes in these services, is fully certified and accredited (R2, IS-14001, e-Stewards, and PA DEP), and provides certificates of proper disposal.

Simply drive up to the Middle School parking lot, and our crew of Green Clubbers will take all the e-waste off your hands. All items are FREE to drop off EXCEPT tube TVs and tube monitors (the wide, heavy, old-school kind). Recent legislation has increased the difficulty in handling Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TVs and monitors (due to the high lead content in the glass), so e-recyclers must charge a fee for proper collection. CRT items will cost $20 per TV/monitor, to be paid at drop-off.

So start collecting your items and stay tuned for more information! Email jhowe@penncharter.com with any questions.
