Passyunk Square Civic Association (PSCA) announces an Electronic Collection Event on Saturday, October 15, 2011 in the Acme parking lot at Passyunk Ave. and Reed St. The event will take place from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. and residents are encouraged to bring “anything with a plug.” All household electronics including computers, printers, microwaves, air-conditioners, metals and small appliances will be accepted. Small business owners with less than 50 employees are also encouraged to participate.
We are also looking for volunteers to help us out with this event. If you can spare an hour or two between noon and 4pm on October 15, please email contact (at) passyunk.org. We promise you won’t have to lift any washers or dryers, maybe just the occasional blender.
PSCA and eForce Compliance, Philadelphia’s only R2 certified e-waste recycler, are sponsoring this event. eForce is eager to bring Passyunk Square their first collection event and provide its residents with the services to properly dispose of their used electronics. Electronics are often thrown in the trash by residents because there are simply few convenient drop off locations available. eForce Compliance allows residents to get rid of their household clutter while recycling responsibly!
This event is part of the “UnLitter Us” South Philly launch being hosted by many South Philadelphia civic and neighborhood associations. All local area residents of South Philadelphia and surrounding areas are encouraged to participate in the days events, and to also bring their obsolete electronics to be responsibly recycled.
So head down to your basement and get ready to clear out all those old tape decks, eight track players, VCRs and other obsolete technology and bring it on by to be recycled.
