Andrews University in Berrien Springs is teaming up with Green Earth Electronics Recycling to protect the earth — one electronic at a time.
Next Wednesday from 3 to 7 p.m., community members, businesses and residents from surrounding communities are encouraged to drop off their unwanted electronics for recycling at the Andrews University Transportation Building. It is located on the north side of campus near the water tower. Green Earth Electronics Recycling will be operating the event.
Accepted items include computers, laptops, monitors, TVs, telephones, cameras, DVD players, cords/cables, printers, toner cartridges, cell phones, refrigerators, air conditioners, appliances and any other electronic items or items with a cord. There is a hazardous disposal fee for CRT monitors ($5) and tube TVs ($10). All hard drives are wiped to Department of Defense specifications or shredded.
All businesses are encouraged to preregister by emailing or calling (269) 326-1232.
Green Earth Electronics, headquartered in New Buffalo, is a company whose focus is to keep unwanted electronics out of the landfill by using the best practices in information destruction and domestic recycling. Its services include corporate and institutional pickups as well as community drop-off events.
