Green Team Southwestern Plans E-Waste Recycling Event for Feb. 6

The Green Team of Southwestern College will again collaborate with Grace United Methodist Church and the City of Winfield for an e-waste recycling event from 3 to 6 p.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 6, at Barn #4 at the Winfield Fairgrounds. The Green Team will be accepting all electronics free of charge except for CRT TVs and monitors. For CRT TVs and monitors, there will be a $5 charge per unit.

“If you are giving or receiving new electronic devices for Christmas this year, set aside your old devices until early February,” says Jason Speegle, director of Green Team Southwestern. 

Businesses and individuals may bring items to the event. GON Recycling will collect the items and process them for recycling. GON Recycling guarantees 100 percent security on all hard drives and customer information. They are e-Stewards, R2 and ISO 14001 Certified.
