Bloomington, IL (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, will host a free electronics recycling event to encourage the community to recycle their electronics during the annual Illinois Sustainable Living and Wellness Expo at Illinois Wesleyan University. All items brought for recycling will be safely and responsibly recycled by Sims Recycling Solutions. The event will be held on April 14, 2012, at the Illinois Wesleyan University Shirk Center parking lot located at 302 E. Emerson Street, Bloomington, IL 61701 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
“Electronics represent the fastest growing waste stream in the United States. Proper recycling of old devices diverts thousands of pounds of waste from landfills, keeps toxic materials from potentially polluting soil and water, and conserves natural resources,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “Unfortunately, because of privacy and ecological concerns it is not always clear what should be done to dispose of an old gadget. Collection events like this one give area residents access to convenient, safe and responsible electronics recycling that protects their personal data and the environment.”
This e-waste collection event will be set up as a drive-through and drop-off event. Staff will be on hand to conveniently and quickly collect items from community members’ vehicles. Please visit http://us.simsrecycling.com/news-and-resources/events for more information.
