What to do with all your electronic "crap"?!

Now's your chance to freely donate that pile of non-desired (totally not even working and you haven't gotten it repaired in the past 2 years) electronic stuff!

Northwest Arkansas Free Electronics Recycling Event

October 11 & 12

Arvest Ballpark, Springdale

Washington County Environmental Affairs, along with other local organizations, will be conducting a FREE electronic waste roundup October 11 &12 at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale.  You can see details of the event at our website http://www.co.washington.ar.us/index.aspx?page=187.

This event will be open to all businesses, schools, residents, and nonprofit organizations in Northwest Arkansas, and we need volunteers to help make this happen.  Volunteers are needed to help unload and stack electronics that will be sent to for recycling.  Last year was the first year this event was held at Arvest Ballpark, and with the help of community volunteers, over 20 semi-truck loads of electronics were collected in two and a half days.  Collected items will be sent to eSCO  Processing and Recycling, an e-Steward certified recycler.

Food and t-shirts will be available for volunteers as well as a letter of service if needed.  We ask that volunteers sign up for at least two hours and be over the age of 14.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Sophie Stephenson at 479.444.1725 or sstephenson@co.washington.ar.us.
