Ecycling Day Sat. March 21 @ Vulcan Park

TechBirmingham Ecycling Day

Please join us for TechBirmingham’s Ecycling Day at the Clover Crawl on Saturday, March 21, 2009 from 10 AM to 4 PM in the lower parking lot of Vulcan Park.  Technical Knock Out will be on hand to assist TechBirmingham with accepting all old electronics except for television sets.  

If you can’t repair, refurbish, or reuse your used electronic device, the next best thing is to recycle it! Electronics consist of valuable resources, such as precious metals, copper, and engineered plastics, all of which require considerable energy to process and manufacture. Recycling electronics recovers valuable materials, conserves virgin resources, and results in lower environmental emissions (including greenhouse gases) than making products from virgin materials. So clean out your office, your attic, your garage and bring all your old electronics on March 21st to be recycled.  Join us for a good, clean day of fun after you help the environment inside Vulcan Park for the Clover Crawl. 

Did you know???
Recycling 1 million desktop computers prevents the release of greenhouse gases equivalent to the annual emissions of over 17,000 passenger cars.
Recycling 1 million cell phones saves enough energy to power more than 19,000 US households with electricity for an entire year.
