Sunnking & Buffalo Sabres Collect 26,500 lbs of Used Electronics to Benefit The Sabres Foundation
Sunnking Inc., recently collected 26,500 lbs. of eScrap from local residents, at the Technology Recycling Day in conjunction with the Buffalo Sabres.
This year alone, Sunnking has coordinated 6 community collection events and collected over 637,000 pounds of electronic scrap from residents in Western New York. This number is expected to dramatically increase due to the upcoming New York State escrap law that goes in to effect next April. The Sunnking facility strives for zero waste production on a daily basis, and is currently able to recycle/reuse approximately 97% of all of the equipment that is collected.
Despite the weather, residents lined up in the parking lot at the HSBC Arena to drop off old computers, monitors, printers, and a variety of other electronic equipment. There were a handful of businesses that stopped by as well, with large trucks filled with old office electronics. A few businesses included Coca-Cola, NAPA, BAV Services, Sterling Summer Inc., and Multisorb Technologies.
“The Sabres event was a great kickoff to our new relationship to divert materials from our wastestream and generate some real revenue for the Sabres Foundation. We look forward to our next bigger and better event.” Says Duane Beckett, Owner of Sunnking.
