Proceeds from the ReStore sales help build Habitat Homes in each store’s respective counties and internationally.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) September 16, 2010
Habitat For Humanity ReStore centers in Pinellas, Polk, Pasco and Hernando Counties have joined the GreenSite Network of drop off locations. Donated working electronics will be resold by participating Habitat ReStore locations and non-working electronics will be recycled by Florida E-Waste Recycling of Tampa in an environmentally friendly manner. Businesses and the general public are encouraged to drop off their computers and electronics for free at a Habitat ReStore location near them in the cities of St. Petersburg, Lakeland, New Port Richey and Brooksville, Florida. Habitat ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials, cabinets, furniture, home accessories, electronics and appliances, that may have otherwise ended up in our waste stream. Proceeds from the ReStore sales help build Habitat Homes in each store’s respective counties and internationally. The GreenSite Network consists of over 40 convenient drop-off locations in Central and Northern Florida. Access http://www.greensiteflorida.com for more information.
“Habitat is a perfect fit for our recycling efforts and we are excited to have them join the GreenSite Network. We are very proud to be working with such a professional and dedicated organization to eliminate e-waste from our landfills.” stated Mark Sage, Managing Partner of Florida E-Waste Recycling.
