  1. SGHS-PTSA thanks you so very much for your interest in our eWaste event. If there is an item that you are not too sure of, you can call the number that is listed on the flyer.

    If you cannot come right on Feb. 26th or Feb. 27th, please send an email to sghstpsa@gmail.com and we will try some other types of arrangements for you to drop off your item(s) at the school ahead of time. So that your email does not go into our ‘spam’ folder, please include “SGHS eWaste” and your name in the ‘subject’ line.

    Thanks again for your support!

  2. Thanks for sharing! Do you know if they’ll accept cables? And power cords? I’ve got so many from cell phones I no longer use etc.

    1. Yes they do! I forgot about those! Pretty much the only household electronics they don’t take are the really big ticket items: refrigerators, ovens, etc. Or air conditioner units.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this! I’ve been storing some old equipment that I just couldn’t bare to throw in the trash.

    I was curious so I looked up the kinds of equipment they’ll accept, in case this is useful to anyone. Examples:

    o Computers
    o Monitors
    o Printers
    o Mother boards
    o UPS
    o Electronic toys
    o PDAs
    o Networking equipment
    o Scanners
    o Copiers
    o VCR/VCD/DVD players
    o Toasters and microwaves
    o Fax machines
    o Entertainment systems
    o Car batteries
    o Toner cartridges
    o Phones and more
