Details: Held biannually, these drives serve to make recycling used or broken electronics as convenient as possible. Responsibly disposing of these items keeps them from landfills and the shipment of them to third world countries, both of which negatively affect the environment and health of the people who live there. To date, over 45,000 lbs. of outdated technology has been recycled at Westminster through these drives.
Recycling through an E-Steward or R-2 certified recycler ensures that materials are disposed of properly, and not buried in landfills or exported to countries where workers are paid low wages and the infrastructure and legal framework is too weak to protect the environment, workers and communities.
There is no cost to consumers for recycling, though there may be a small cost for businesses to ensure that items are safely disposed of, which goes entirely to the recycler. AV and Westminster serve to promote and provide both labor and location, but make no money off of the drives.
