Longwood Graduate Program Saves Electronics from Landfill

October 18, 2010 under CANR News, Events

The Longwood Graduate Program in public horticulture hosted its fourth successful Electronics Recycling Day on October 14.  They were able to collect computers, cell phones, walkie talkies, modems, radios, printers, dehumidifiers, a plethora of batteries, and many other items.  Four palettes worth of electronics were kept from the landfill and about 20 cell phones will be going to Cell Phones for Soldiers.

The students will organize another Electronics Recycling Day for next semester so continue to save any broken or unwanted electronics until next time.

Don’t forget that you can always recycle your plastic grocery bags in the green bin in Townsend Hall Commons!
