SMILES Holds Annual Electronics Recycling Fundraiser Next Weekend
By Mitch Keegan, Anchor, KEYC News 12 Midday - email
SMILES Center for Independent Living will be holding our 9th Annual Computer/Electronic Recycling Event on Friday, May 2nd & Saturday, May 3rd at the Madison East parking lot. This is a great way to get rid of that old computer, stereo, TV or microwave that's been taking up space in your basement, closet or garage.
SMILES accepts computers, monitors, printers, computer peripherals, TV's, stereos, VCR's, DVD players and microwaves. SMILES will also accept air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and mini refrigerators. Large house hold appliances are not accepted.
This year, SMILES will use the funds raised from this event to help Veterans with their technology needs. This may range from helping a Vet with getting a cell phone and minutes, to purchasing an iPad or computer and necessary training. SMILES will be working together with area Veteran agencies to assist Veterans in this mission.
The fee is $.55/ lbs. and funds raised will go toward the purchase of assistive technology devices for area Veterans. Attached is a flyer that has additional information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact SMILES.
