E-Waste 2013: We smash previous records!
A total of over 325,000 pounds of electronic waste was collected from area businesses, neighborhood associations (especially River Park Neighborhood Association!), and over 1,200 vehicles from the general public. Great job recycling, everyone!
E-Waste Fest 2012:Another great event! for the 4th year in a row, IU South Bend has served as an annual electronics recycling drop off point. Thanks to over 1,000 vehicles dropping off waste totaling 210,000 pounds we have diverted LOTS of valuable materials from the waste stream.
Scenes from last year's event:
Thanks Carissa (below), our dedicated EWaste Volunteer organizer who organized that last three events. You made a difference!
What a success! A total of 1,607 cars came through the event. We filled 11 trailers with old electronics, weighing approximately 275,000 pounds. This is about a 20% increase from last year.
In addition, our volunteers and improved drop off system allowed us to unload an average of 5 car per minute from 9am-2pm on Saturday.
This was the third year for this event, which was designed to provide an opportunity for the Michiana community to properly dispose of electronic waste.
