Thank you Palm Beach County residents for a successful electronics recycling event!
Palm Beach County and Reboot Charity hosted the electronics/tech recycling event on Saturday August 28th at the Mounts Botanical Garden with the 4H youth development program w/ a tremendous amount of support from local Palm Beach County residents! The cars kept driving in, the e-Waste, or electronic waste, kept flooding in! A highlight was when the Boys and Girl’s club of PBC drove their bus in and FILLED our loading truck with their electronic donations of computers & monitors! What a turnout! Wow!
All the electronics that were donated will not end up in landfills that pollute our environment and Palm Beach County residents contributed to that! What cannot be repurposed will go to the proper recycling center! What can be reused and resold will help fund the charity that assists volunteer educators & others who have special needs! Donators were also given a receipt for tax purposes!
It was a hot day, literally, both in the sense of support and in the sense that it was over 110 degrees (ok, maybe not THAT hot, but if felt like it!). And volunteers also brought us some food and snacks so we ourselves wouldn’t waste away!!!
And btw, we had the best, and youngest, and most adorable volunteer ever!
Thank you again Palm Beach County residents! Spread the word! Don’t throw it away- REBOOT IT!
