Reminder: Electronics Recycling Saturday At Whole Foods
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents can drop off "anything with a plug."
If you've been trying to figure out how to get rid of a junky television or broken air conditioner, Saturday may be your lucky day: Whole Foods in Wynnewood will offer free electronics recycling from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Individuals and small businesses (less than 50 employees) are welcome to participate, and can drop off "anything with a plug," including:
- Computer accessories
- Household appliances
eForce Compliance, the company who will collect the waste, will ensure that all materials are responsibly recycled, a Whole Foods press release states:
All material collected will be responsibly recycled by eForce Compliance, who maintains a zero landfill policy and zero export of hazardous e-waste to developing countries. eForce is Pennsylvania's only multi-certified electronic recycling company (R2, e-Stewards, ISO 14011) and assures all data media will be destroyed or wiped at their facility.
At an electronics recycling event in February, the Wynnewood Whole Foods collected 23,840 pounds of electronics. More than 100,000 pounds of electronics were collected at Whole Foods stores across the region. It was the largest collection event held by Whole Foods Market in the Tri-State to date, according to the company.
The Wynnewood Whole Foods is located at 339 E Lancaster Ave. in Wynnewood. Residents can drop off electronics on Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
