Tomorrow in Walter White’s neighborhood, in fact at the actual high school where the embattled science teacher was unceremoniously fired; Eldorado High School’s Eagle Earth and Reality Project, in partnership with Albuquerque Recycling Inc., will accept electronics for recycling.
The event page says, it “is intended to provide community members with an opportunity to bring their e-scrap for recycling at a convenient time and location.”
“It is very important for our students to take control of their own futures as well as the Earth’s…Proper recycling of electronic components translates into a healthier environment”, says real life Eldo. Science Department Chair, Eric Holmes.
Associate sponsors of the Eldorado event include the National Honors Society, Language Honors Societies, Key Club, DECA, Best Buddies, BSU, and FEA.
One CRT monitor per car will be recycled for free. Additional CRT monitors and ALL CRT televisions cannot be accepted. Anyone needing to recycle older CRT televisions should take them to Best Buy Electronics. Best Buy is dedicated to recycling a large variety of electronics in a responsible way.
