Details: Whether you’re looking to clean out your garage, that storage closet, free-up the junk drawer, or just plain do something good for the environment – there’s a way to make it happen. On Saturday, May 10, from 10am-2pm, middle school youth will be hosting a FREE recycling collection at Lake Grove Presbyterian Church. Recycling services will be provided by EG Metals, an Environmental Technologies company with headquarters in Hillsboro, Oregon.
All those plastic lids, obsolete computers, cell phones, Ethernet cables, phone cords, and miss-matched chargers that you’ve been holding onto will finally have a purpose after all. All proceeds from this event will help support a group of 24 staff and students who will be working among the hungry and homeless in Redding, CA this summer. EG Metals, a nationally certified electronics recycler, provides full-service metal and electronics recycling in an environmentally conscious fashion, adhering to a ‘no landfill policy’ for all products received by EG Metals.
