"This program benefits children, the environment, and participants." - eTitle CEO Linda Orlans

Troy, Michigan (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

eTitle Agency, Inc. has announced that the E-Clutter for Kids Recycling Program’s Spring Drive will run through the end of June, providing people the ability to donate electronic waste that will later be re-purposed or recycled. Each tax-deductible donation benefits the Beaumont Children’s Hospital’s First Words Society, a nonprofit organization and affiliate of The Children’s Miracle Network, providing treatment scholarships for under-served children with speech and language disorders.

eTitle has been involved with this program for the past two years, helping to raise over $20,000 in donations. During the first E-clutter drive, volunteers at drop-off locations across Metro Detroit filled 10 semi trucks, six dumpsters and recycled more than 100,000 pounds of potentially toxic waste material that would have ended up in landfills.

People interested in donating their unwanted electronics can drop them off at Statewide Recycling & Recovery, 40251 Schoolcraft, Plymouth, MI. Make sure to mention the donation is being made as part of the Beaumont E-Clutter program. Additionally, companies or individuals that have large donations may arrange for a pickup by contacting Statewide Recycling at 734-453-0600.

“This program has so many positive benefits,” said eTitle CEO Linda Orlans, who is also a founding member and president of the First Words Society. “It’s the environmentally correct way to dispose of electronic waste, participants get a tax deduction for getting rid of unwanted stuff and, most importantly, money is raised to help support the needs of speech and language-challenged children.”
