E-Waste Drive Saturday June 2nd

by admin on May 16, 2012

The Tamworth Wireless Cooperative is please to announce an “E-Waste Drive” on Saturday, June 2, 2012 for residents of Tamworth and Sandwich and surrounding towns. Here are the basics:

What:  An “E-Waste Drive” – an environmentally friendly way to get rid of all those old electronic devices that you still have because you aren’t sure what to do with them (there’s a specific list of items below).

Where & When: The K.A. Brett School in Tamworth, Saturday June 2, from 9am to 1pm

How It Works:   You put your electronic items in your vehicle, and drive it to the Brett School. When you arrive, a team of trained volunteers removes and sorts them for reclamation. You don’t even need to leave your vehicle, or pay anything.

How much will it cost me?:     Nothing. FREE. Zip. Zero.

How is that possible?:   The Tamworth Wireless Cooperative is sponsoring the event, along with the K.A. Brett School, The Tamworth Farmers Market, Harte Rentals, The Brass Heart Inn, Sunnyfield Brick Oven Bakery and a growing list of private donors and business sponsors. If you’d like to pitch in, click on the “Donate To The Drive” button over in the left column or contact our Treasurer,  Sheena Harte <sheena.harte@gmail.com>

If you know that you have more than a few things that need to go, especially those big CRT monitors and televisions, please let us know.  We’ve heard rumors of largish caches of stuff out there, and the more the merrier, but please let us know so we can have enough trucks on hand on June 2nd.

If your devices have personal data on them that you would like to save or destroy, please do that before the event. If you need help with that or have questions, call me at 603-323-7188, 603-986-3619 or <dennis@tamwireless.net>
