E-Cycling Old Computers and TVs - April 15th

Hello Chestnut Addition Neighborhood Association,

The Student Engineering Council is hosting their annual E-cycling drive on April 15, 2012 in the LBJ parking lot from 8 AM to 5 PM. This is a campus-wide effort to reduce poor recycling methods of unwanted and/or unused electronics. Goodwill and Computer Works are teaming up with UT to provide the greater Austin area with an opportunity to recycle their electronics.

During this drive, volunteers can sign up and help with various tasks that include packaging the electronics and directing the flow of traffic.

Our committee was wondering if you knew of any electronics that the Chestnut community may have that we could possibly recycle in the proper manner.

Also, we would greatly appreciate if you spread the word about our event and encourage participation and/or telling people to bring their electronics on this day.

More information can be found on our website - http://sec.engr.utexas.edu/ewaste/
