Weird Waste Day

GReenINChestnutHill aka GRINCH, a grassroots environmental organization in Chestnut Hill, is organizing its second Weird Waste Day. The event will take place on Saturday April 10th, 2010 from 1pm-4pm in the Valley Green Bank parking lot on West Highland Ave. in Chestnut Hill.
Residents and business people are encouraged to bring their electronic waste such as TV's, computers, cell phones and key boards that will be disposed of responsibly at a cost of 40 cents per pound. The electronics are then reused or recycled responsibly. Cash or checks will be accepted.
Any additional revenues will be used for future recycling events.

  3. What company is taking the weird waste to be recycled, and where it is being recycled? Is it in the United States, or elsewhere?
    Thanks,
    Evan

    The company that is recycling and reusing our EWaste responsibly is called ECompliance. They are located in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia and GRINCH has toured their facility.
