Quotes to Note
“Electronics Recycling begins at the community level with education. Working with WMNF 88.5 on Earth Day--for the second consecutive year—is a great way to share electronics recycling with the community. Given the success of last year’s event, it was a no-brainer to turn this into an annual collaboration,” said Tiffini Schwarzkopf, Executive Director of Marketing for Creative Recycling Systems. She added, “Having the opportunity to educate and provide a safe electronics recycling outlet is tremendous. When you clean out an office or home and recycle the electronics you no longer use--or need--you actually feel good. To know that they are safely recycled, feels even better.”
“We were blown away by the amount of electronics we collected last year,” said Sheila Cowley, Operations Manager at WMNF, “our partnership with Creative Recycling helps us provide the community with a safe outlet for recycling electronics.”
