Arlington, TX (PRWEB) April 17, 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. Anyone who drops off an electronic device for recycling will receive a coupon good toward the purchase of a discounted ticket for a self-guided tour of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. This event will be held on April 21, 2012, at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium located at One Legends Way, Arlington, TX 76011 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 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.
Self-guided tours of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium give fans access to the most popular areas of the world’s largest domed structure, including the football field, the locker rooms and the post-game interview room. Fans also have the opportunity to admire the contemporary works of art on display throughout Cowboys Stadium. Sims Recycling Solutions will be inside the stadium at this time with an artist who will create art pieces from used and recycled electronics. A trained technician will also be there to demonstrate the first step of recycling your old e-waste, taking it all apart. From there, visual aids and explanations will help you learn about the process Sims Recycling Solutions uses to recycle your electronics.
“This community electronics collection event in celebration of Earth Day is special for two reasons: Through the simple act of dropping off broken or old devices, the residents of Arlington can do their part to protect and preserve the environment and they can participate in 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. Electronics represent the fastest growing waste stream in the United States. Recycling them contributes to a sustainable future and the health of the planet by keeping thousands of pounds of waste out of landfills, saving water and energy and reducing pollution.”
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.
