Whole Foods Offers Free Electronics Recycling, Jan. 26

The store will accept almost anything with an electrical plug, including all small appliances from computers to televisions to heaters and copy machines.

Have an old copy machine, computer or television lying around? Whole Foods in Wynnewood will be collecting small appliances at a free electronics recycling event on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Whole Foods will accept almost everything with an electrical plug, but no large appliances like washing machines or refrigerators will be accepted. All computer hard drives will be destroyed, the event listing states. 

The full information is below:

Join us for our first E-Cycling Event of the New Year!  We are accepting almost anything with an electrical plug - all small appliances from computers to televisions to heaters and copy machines.  Rest assured that all computer hard drives are destroyed and no personal information will be compromised.  

Did you know that in 2012 Whole Foods Market Wynnewood customers responsibly recycled 46,868 pounds of electronics?  We’re excited to see if we can top that number in 2013 and with your help we can! 

All electronics are collected by E-Force Compliance, a Philadelphia metro recycling company whose commitment to the highest level of environmental stewardship is unparalleled.  Most of the items are de-manufactured nearby and a majority of the materials recycled remain within the metro-Philadelphia area creating sustainable green jobs and stimulating local economy.  

The Devon store will also be collecting electronics so please spread the word! 

No large appliances such as washing machines or refrigerators please. 

Residents with questions can contact Ruth Harp at 610-896-8134 or email ruth.harp@wholefoods.com.
