West Bay Rotary to hold electronic waste disposal event

Apr 17, 2014

Camden — West Bay Rotary Club will be repeating its annual collection and recycling of unwanted/unusable electronic equipment Saturday, April 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the old Rockport Elementary School/East site.

This is by the intersection of Routes 1 and 90, close to the Market Basket and Cellardoor Villa.

This event is open to residents of all communities and drop-off is free. West Bay Rotary does not benefit financially from the equipment donated but rather from voluntary donations to the Club. These donations are encouraged to support local community and international projects of Rotary International, however they are left to the discretion of the donor.

The items collected are processed by the ERS Company, a Department of Environmental Protection approved organization who will recycle the components dropped off. Qualifying items are: televisions, CPU’s, monitors, copiers, printers, keyboard/mouse/peripherals, DVD players, cellphones, remote controls, VCRs, projectors, digital cameras, tape players, PDA’s, speakers, telephones, two-way radios, answering machines, camcorders, CD players, electric typewriters, game systems, pagers, microwaves, ink cartridges, FAX machines, scanners, laptops, stereos and toner cartridges.

West Bay Rotary has been serving the midcoast community since 1986 and supports such areas as local food pantries, animal rescue/adoption, Meals on Wheels, fuel emergency relief funds through town offices, scholarships and vocational projects at Camden Hills Regional High School, International Youth Exchange programs, world-wide disaster relief efforts, international Polio eradication efforts and many other programs – the motto of Rotary: “Service Above Self”.

Please remember, do not leave recycling items at this location except when the collection is under way and staff personal are present.
