Hart School District students care about the environment and want to help protect it for future generations. Several Hart District schools plan free Electronic Waste Recycling events throughout the year as school fundraisers and to support a reduction in E-Waste that is currently a major contributor to landfills. Certified E-Waste recyclers have been contracted to assist students with the collection process.
Electronics that will be accepted include: Computer monitors and towers, TV’s, plasma screens, CRT & LCD screens, laptops, copiers, fax machines, calculators, keyboards / mice, stereo systems, cell phones, telephones, speakers, VCR /DVD players, printers, and power supplies.
Electronic Waste is any consumer electronic equipment that has reached its “end-of-life” or “end-of-usage”, whether in full or non-working condition. It includes most electronics or electric appliances with a cord or circuit board, such as listed above. Currently, 56% of American households have functional e-products that they no longer use. Seventy percent of heavy metals, and 40% of lead and mercury contents found in today’s landfills come from E-Waste. Additionally, recent federal mandates require that television stations switch from analog format to digital format, which makes many televisions obsolete.
This E-Waste event, and others sponsored by Hart District schools, provide local residents the opportunity to properly dispose of electronic waste, while supporting many excellent public school programs.
