The Arnold Center and e-recycler 3S International to host Thursday, Dec. 4 event
MT. PLEASANT, Mich., Nov. 25, 2014—Mt. Pleasant, Mich.-based electronics processor 3S International and the Arnold Center, a non-profit community rehabilitation center, are building on the success of their partnership by hosting a large-scale e-recycling collection event. The event will encourage mid-Michigan businesses and community members to drop off their end-of-life electronics for safe, secure, and sustainable recycling.
From 2-5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4, participants can bring their end-of-life electronics such as laptops, computers, LCDs and flat screens to the Arnold Center, located at 490 Industrial Drive in Gladwin. Bulky CRT televisions and computer monitors are not accepted. A complete list of accepted items is available here.
“Our partnership with the Arnold Center has had great success helping to promote responsible electronics recycling in the mid-Michigan community,” said Brittany Bradley, account executive for 3S International. “Our recent electronics recycling drives have generated such positive feedback that we plan to continue to host similar events, to educate and provide a needed community resource for businesses and families.”
The event targets businesses, schools and organizations looking to donate and safely dispose of large quantities of computers, LCD screens, and end-of-life electronics. Through the partnership with 3S International – and utilizing the company’s groundbreaking BLUBOX technology – the Arnold Center ensures that all donated electronics and data-containing devices are physically shredded and that all sensitive information is securely destroyed.
Organizations that donate end-of-life electronics through the e-recycling program will help the Arnold Center provide vocational, social, and life skills programs to those in need. The Arnold Center has locations in Midland and Gladwin. Visit arnoldcenter.org or call (708) 263-0400 for more information.
