Bring your electronic waste to San Gabriel High School for free recycling March 24 and 25 — and you can help support school programs.
The annual e-waste fundraising event hosted by the San Gabriel Parent Teachers Student Association will also feature a community yard sale, car wash, and breakfast from 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on March 24.
Electronic waste includes computers monitors, laptops, printers, scanners, copiers, LCDs, PC peripherals, VCR/DVD players, fax machines, power supplies, auto/rechargeable batteries, and cell/landline phones. Microwave ovens and refrigerators will not be collected.
Due to state budget cuts, the San Gabriel Parent Teachers Student Association plays an important role in funding projects at the high school, donating money for choir robes, drama performances, student competitions, and providing red and blue benches around campus. This will be PTSA’s fourth E-Waste event; they have raised more than $10,400 from these environmentally friendly fundraisers.
“Recycling your old electronics helps the environment, the school, and your conscience,” said PTSA President Raymond Gin.
To be a vendor at the community yard sale, contact PTSA Vice President Beda Ramirez at [email protected] or 626-308-2312 by March 9. The vendor fee is $20 for a space equivalent to a standard parking stall.
The event is from 9 am to 3 pm at San Gabriel High School 801 S. Ramona St., San Gabriel, E-waste collection will be in the south parking lot and the yard sale, car wash, and breakfast in the north lot from 8 am to 2 pm.
