Green Coast Rubbish is excited to be partnering with e-waste organization Think Recycle. In 2010, we were able to divert 50.80 tonnes of e-waste and other materials from the landfills. In a time of the year when many new electronic powered toys, TV’s, computers and other presents are sure to be unwrapped from the tree it is important to think about what happens to electronics when they need to be recycled.
Think Recycle is an innovative environmental fund raising program that takes unwanted and old electronics and disposes of them properly through refurbishment, recycling or reuse. They take electronics such as laptops, tablets, blue-tooths, cell phones, digital cameras, inkjet cartridges and more.
A full list of electronics and the rebates can be found here. Green Coast Rubbish is encouraging everyone to join Think Recycle.
Signing up is easy:
- Register to become a member on the Think Recycle website.
- Collect a minimum of 10 electronics and pack them in a cardboard box.
- Request a pre-paid shipping label, attach to your box and drop in the mail!
The funds you earn can be used for whatever your organization needs or given to the charity arm of your choice. All funds generated by Green Coast Rubbish will be donated to the David Suzuki Foundation.
Together we can create a positive environmental impact. Call us today to properly dispose of your old, unused electronics and help us raise funds for a great organization!
