Another awesome e-cycling day!

 On Saturday, Sept. 25, community members and businesses once again came to Norwood-Fontbonne Academy to recycle their electronic waste. We collected 20,236 pounds of computers, TVs, small appliances, peripherals, and other electronic waste that will be responsibly recycled instead of ending up in a landfill or being sent to a developing nation. Since 2009 we have collected almost 100 tons of electronic waste!

We would like to thank the following people who helped make this event, organized by Green in Chestnut Hill (GRinCH) and the Weavers Way Environment Committee, such an amazing success: Norwood-Fontbonne Academy for donating the use of their driveway, eforce Compliance ( for their responsible recycling services, our volunteers, and especially all of the community members and businesses who came to recycle their electronic waste. (We especially appreciate everyone's patience as they waited in line, and we're working on ways to reduce waiting times.)

So many people made a donation to support community environmental projects too. Thank you!

SCH is visited by the Dept. Of Education!

I had the pleasure of touring SCH's environmental initiatives during a tour last week. GRinCH help to fund a few of their projects and it was great to see both their commitment to sustainability in action as part of the school's culture as well as a couple of projects that we helped to fund!
