Earth Day E-Waste Recycling Event

It is that time of year again and since spring cleaning is on the minds of many, I wanted to share an exciting event we have planned to help rid you of your clutter.

Saturday, April 25th, 2015 is the annual E-Waste Recycling and Paper Shredding event at Okanagan College (1000 KLO Road, Kelowna – Parking Lot 4) from 9am-1pm. This is the 8th year for this event hosted by 1-800-GOT-JUNK in recognition of Earth Day which supports the community by providing a convenient outlet for electronics recycling and collects donations for the Kelowna Food Bank. 2015 marks the eight year 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will offer free electronic recycling in recognition of Earth Day. This year’s partners include Organizing Help, Planet Earth Recycling and Okanagan Paper Shredding.

The following items will be accepted for free recycling:
• TVs
• Computers and their components
• Printers
• Video game systems
• Cables
• Small kitchen appliances (mixers, coffee makers, microwave ovens, coffee grinders, electric grills, toasters, etc.)
• Batteries (including car batteries)
• …and almost anything with a cable!

On-site shredding of confidential documents will also be available, provided by Okanagan Paper Shredding ($5/banker box).

This is also a chance to donate to the Kelowna Food Bank. We’ll be collecting donations of non-perishables – just drop them off in the blue and green junk trucks.

Last year, we recycled 6 tonnes of electronics, collected 240 lbs of food and over $300 in cash for the food bank, and shredded 2 tonnes of paper.

Now, it is just a matter of taking a look around your home or office to see what you might like to let go of. Contact me today to book an organizing session or attend our event and get ready to experience a lightness and sense of freedom as you clear away clutter and make space for a brighter future!
