Buried in electronics?
Posted Thursday, January 9, 2014
Loveland High School (LHS) working in conjunction with Cohen Recycling as part of the LHS Environmental Science class is offering a special electronics recycling program the week of January 13.
“LHS Students Austin Wood, Scott Multner and Elliot Peet from the Honors Environmental Science class initiated this eco-friendly electronics recycling program,” said Tracy Burge, LHS Environmental Science teacher. “This is an event designed to help our school and community help the environment, and we are anticipating excellent participation.”
"Just when you think they should have run out of ideas, students in Ms. Burge's Environmental Science classes come up with something else,” said LHS Principal Chris Kloesz. “The unceasing brainstorming and the consistent flow of Earth-friendly initiatives is truly fun to watch. These students definitely exemplify their mantra, ‘Go Tigers! Go Green!’”
The entire Tiger Family is welcome to bring in any (yes, ANY) electronics or cables to LHS and place them in the designated bins near the library. You can recycle your electronics starting Monday, Jan. 13, through Friday, Jan. 17, during normal school hours, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18.
Please note: There is a small fee associated with television recycling because of the cost to the recycler to properly recycle these items - small TV $5, medium TV $10, large TV $15.
Cohen Recycling, the business sponsoring this program, will write LHS a check for the amount of money in electronics that have been recycled at the end of this period.
