Building trusted relationships and holding collections events in cities nationwide has lead to safer environmental choices.
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) November 23, 2010
In recognition of America Recycles Day, AERC Recycling Solutions held a free Electronic Recycling Collection Event in Sebastian, FL, this month co-sponsored by Indian River County. AERC, one of the leading full-service recycling companies in the nation, is committed to responsible recycling practices for a healthier tomorrow.
Hundreds of Indian River County residents attended the event to dispose of their unwanted electronics that would otherwise end up in Florida landfills. In total, AERC collected 18,113 pounds of recyclable materials at the Sebastian event alone and assisted the county in keeping 196,378 pounds of disposed electronics out of the landfill since the start of the year.
Collected materials included printers, scanners, CPUs, computer monitors, laptops, internal computer components, telephones, telecommunication equipment, cameras, hand held games, computer accessories and peripherals, cables, wires and other electronic equipment. Some Universal Waste materials such as lamps and batteries were also accepted.
“AERC operates five Electronics Processing facilities, all dedicated to providing convenience and expert consulting to handle e-waste issues. Building trusted relationships and holding collections events in cities nationwide has lead to safer environmental choices such as those made by Indian River County residents and area business owners,” said Lindsay Landmesser, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
AERC has a Zero-Waste-to-Landfill Policy on all electronics that are collected for recycling. All information is destroyed from any data storage devices that are accepted.
