The world produces an estimated 50 million tons of E-waste annually. Americans throw away 30 million computers each year, while our European counterparts toss nearly 100 million cell phones. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 80 percent of discarded electronics are deposited in landfills or incinerated without being properly recycled. In the US, 70 percent of the heavy metals found in landfills come from improperly disposed of electronics.
That's why Senator Gallivan is teaming up with Sunnking Electronics Recycling, the East Aurora Rotary and Time Warner Cable to provide a safe and easy way to dispose of your used and out-dated electronics.
Join us at the Nativity Lutheran Church in East Aurora, 970 E. Main St. in East Aurora from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM on Saturday, January 12, 2013.
