E-Waste Donation Drive
Posted By sbieber on April 14, 2021
We are excited to announce that our building will be partnering with Starry Internet and Human I-T for an E-Waste donation drive in appreciation of Earth Day (April 22nd).
Importance of E-Waste donation drives:
- E-Waste are electronic devices that are no longer being used.
- It’s not safe (and illegal in California) to throw old electronics in your regular trash, but many people don’t know how else to dispose of these items.
- You can take them to a recycling center, but with the confusing acceptance restrictions, there’s no guarantee your items will actually be recycled.
- Through a donation drive with a trusted company, you can ensure that your old electronics will get a 2nd life.
Starry and Human I-T have teamed up to not just recycle your electronic devices, but to repurpose and reuse, transforming E-Waste into opportunities for underserved communities, while promoting digital inclusion and online access.
Benefits to you:
- Secure data wiping HIPAA and DoD compliant
- Receive a tax-deductible donation receipt
- Knowing your old tech is being repurposed to help those in need
- Knowing you’re helping the environment by not filling the landfills with materials that can easily be given a 2nd life
The donation bin will be located in the lobby by the front desk, and you can donate any time between Tuesday, April 20th and Friday, May 7th.
The Starry team will be on-site on Thursday, May 6th from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to help with any questions you may have about donations. As an extra thank you, they’ll be giving out digital $5 Starbucks gift cards for anyone that donates while they’re here.
A list of items that you may donate, can be found at the front desk.
