Recycling for Charities Needs Your Help to Keep 75 Tons of E-Waste Out of Landfills
Between March 22 and April 24 individuals with used or broken electronics, such as cell phones, PDAs, MP3 players, and digital cameras, will have the opportunity to recycle their items at participating locations in downtown Royal Oak.
“Everyone has at least one phone sitting and collecting dust. If thrown away 150 cell phones can create up to 75 tons of garbage in our landfills. That amount of waste is enough to pollute about 150 Olympic size swimming pools of water. Our Earth Day Challenge is a call to action to recycle those items and prevent further damage to the environment,”
For the Earth Day Challenge, RFC worked with several local businesses in Royal Oak to organize drop points throughout the City. Getting involved is easy. Simply bring your used electronic items to one of the drop points and RFC will do the rest. RFC will be accepting cell phones, iPods, iPhones, pagers, PDA’s, MP3 players, and digital cameras. Going green is that easy, and your donation is also a tax write off. As an added incentive, Scout, Shine, and Titzy’s will be offering discounts to ‘green’ customers who donate their old electronics.
