Weavers Way EWaste event!

The Weavers Way Environment Committee is sponsoring an Electronics Recycling Event on Saturday, January 12.  From 10 am to 2 pm, the recycling will be in the parking lot behind the Valley Green Bank in Chestnut Hill at 23 West Highland Avenue.

You may bring in anything with a plug.  This includes printers, telephones, televisions, computers and much more.  It is important to recycle electronics responsibly so that these items are not sent to third world countries where children often dismantle the toxic chemicals, endangering their health as well as the environment.  Whatever you bring will be dismantled here in Philadelphia and reused.

The event is free but donations are very much appreciated.  The Environment Committee uses the donations to help fund their Grant Program.  Last year recipients included Chestnut Hill Garden District, Ogontz Library, Hope Garden at Stenton Family Manor and E. Mt. Airy Community Garden, among others.
