Leave a comment

As you can see by the countdown on the left hand sidebar, there will be an ELECTRONIC RECYCLING DRIVE this SATURDAY APRIL 20 from 8AM-1PM. This event will take place at the MADISON WEST HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER’S PARKING LOT located at the intersection of VAN HISE AVE and HIGHLAND.

As a rule of thumb, we will accept ANYTHING WITH A PLUG THAT ACCEPTS BATTERIES UNDER 75 LBS. If you have questions, feel free to send an email to mwhgreenclub@gmail.com.

This fundraiser is a huge deal because we’re trying to raise money for a school green house! We’re asking for a suggested minimum donation of $10. Note that there is a mandatory fee of $15 for small TVs and $30 for large TVs. Last year, we managed to prevent over 2 tons of electronic waste from going into landfills. Let’s make it 5 tons this year!
