AIM Ecycling and Genoa Bank are teaming up to offer a simple solution to keep laptops out of landfills and give them to students.
OHIO, USA – You can head to the polls until the end of May Bank of Genoa places to drop off unused laptops that will be refurbished and resold at low cost to students in need this fall.
AIM Ecycling and Genoa Bank are teaming up to offer a simple solution to keep laptops out of landfills and give them to students. When you donate your laptop, all data will be destroyed first. This laptop will then either be recycled or repaired.
The EPA estimates that only 38% of the 3 million tons of e-waste in the US is recycled each year. These electronics, including laptops, contain harmful materials such as cadmium, lead and beryllium.
Such materials can only be considered as trace elements, but when they increase in volume, they can pose a significant threat to the environment.
Participating Genoa Bank branches include:
Momi | 703 Conant st.
Perrysburg | 9920 Old US 20
Sylvania | 5501 Monroe St.
You can return your laptop during regular business hours until May 31st. For more information on where to drop off other electronics, Click here.
