Thank you for making our summer eRecycling events such a success
During July and August, we partnered with Midwest Recycling Center to hold eRecycling events at our Arnold and Webster Groves branches. The Arnold branch collected 12,2444 pounds, while Webster Groves collected 9,700 pounds.
We collected a total of 21,944 pounds of waste this summer. That’s almost 11 tons of old, obsolete and broken electronics saved from area landfills!
To put this feat in perspective, 11 tons is equal to about 15 fully grown American bison.
Both events featured some hot weather. Special thanks to the MRC employees for pushing through the heat and humidity to collect all of the items and load them onto the truck (which was even hotter).
We will be holding eRecycling next summer in the month of June at our North County and Arnold branches.
