Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, and Sims Metal Management will host a free electronics recycling event to encourage the community to recycle their electronics and major appliances. All items brought for recycling will be safely and responsibly recycled by Sims Recycling Solutions. The event will be held on April 21, 2012, at Cal Exposition and State Fairgrounds in Parking Lot E off Ethan Way from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Cal Expo is located at 1600 Exposition Boulevard, Sacramento, CA 95822. This site will be one of five involved in an attempt to break an official Guinness World Record for the most consumer electronics collected within 24 hours - multiple locations.
“This community electronics collection event in celebration of Earth Day is special for two reasons: It gives the residents of Sacramento an opportunity to be good environmental stewards through the simple act of dropping off broken or old devices and it gives them a chance to be a part of an exciting attempt to break a Guinness World Record,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “While the goal of this one-day event is to collect a record-breaking number of electronic devices, the broader objective of this campaign is to raise awareness about the ongoing importance of properly recycling e-waste. By recycling end-of-life electronics, we all have the ability to contribute to a sustainable future and the health of the planet.”
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 us.simsrecycling.com/EarthDay2012 for more information.
