‘Upcycle’ electronics at Spring Lake Park High School

Everybody wins at the Nov. 13 “Upcycle Fest,” held at Spring Lake Park High School. You can get rid of no-longer-needed consumer electronics with no recycling fees; the school district receives fundraising dollars; and the environment wins when these items are recycled – resulting in less items in landfills.

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, anyone and everyone can drop off their consumer electronics  (“e-waste”) for recycling at the high school. Simply drive up and drop off from 4-8 p.m., in the student parking lot on the east side of the school.

All data will be deleted from your electronics.

All makes and models, in any condition, will be accepted, including large items, like televisions, desktop and laptop computers, monitors, fax machines, printers, VCRs and DVD players, and small items, such as cell phones, iPods and MP3 players, e-readers, keyboards, hand-held video game consoles, video games, digital picture frames and GPS units.

Air conditioners and kitchen appliances will not be accepted.

When you donate your used electronics they are refurbished and resold, and this creates funding for projects identified by the school district. It also keeps your devices out of landfills.

Upcycling is the easy, safe and responsible way to be green while making a difference. You’re supporting the school district, and you’re protecting the planet.

Get rid of unwanted items, pay no recycling fees, turn “e-waste” into funding for schools and help the community go green!

Each recycler will receive a Noodles and Company meal coupon. Donations are 100 percent tax deductible.
