Forever Green Capstone Event
E-Waste Recycling Day
When: May 15, 2010
Who & Why: Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana (GSK) will join forces with Global Environmental Services (GES) to address the issue of recycling electronic waste (e-waste). Get your community involved by inviting business, friends, schools and neighbors to bring items.
What: E-waste from your home or business to recycle responsibly, including:
inkjet cartridges radios DVD players
laser toner cartridges fax machines VCR players
cell phones hard drives TV’s
computers modems monitors
keyboards printers copiers
and more . . .
We cannot accept household appliances. A good rule thumb is if you can put water in it, it will not be accepted, such as refrigerators, irons, bread makers, etc. There is a $5 charge on the recycling of TV’s and monitors with glass a front (not flat screens). This charge is for the cost of discharging a noxious gas contained in these items.
GES recycles 100% of its electronic waste and none of it is shipped overseas to third world countries.
How: Utilize your grassroots networking connections and spread the word! Let’s make a difference in our community!
Where: E-waste drop off locations will be in each of the five GSK service centers.
