Nichols Hills, OK (PRWEB) April 13, 2012
Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, will host a free electronics recycling event with the city of Nichols Hills to encourage the community to recycle their electronics. Electronics will be collected as part of the city’s household hazardous waste collection event. All electronics brought for recycling will be safely and responsibly recycled by Sims Recycling Solutions. The event will be held on April 21, 2012, at the former First Church of Christ Scientist at 1203 Sherwood Lane, Nichols Hills, OK 73116 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
“Sims Recycling Solutions is excited to be partnering with the city of Nichols Hills to give every resident access to convenient, safe and secure electronics disposal. By working together during this Earth Day collection event, we can raise awareness about the benefits and the importance of properly recycling old or unwanted devices,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “Just like more common household recyclables, the glass, aluminum and plastic in e-waste can be recovered and used in new products. This diverts potentially toxic materials from landfills, reduces pollution, saves natural resources and creates a healthier environment for everyone.”
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.
