Today I’ll be out and about around town using a Camry Hybrid to get around, thanks to @ToyotaCanada. I have a few destinations and I’ll be blogging throughout the day with updates on the events. The first stop on my Earth Day tour of Vancouver today is King George Secondary in the West End.
The high school is participating in Best Buy’s “Tech it Away” event where you can bring in your electronic goods for recycling.
Accepted items include computers, monitors, cables & accessories, laptops, printers, fax machines, TVs, cell phones, batteries, DVD players, and VCRs.
In exchange for these recycling efforts at schools by student volunteers, Best Buy will award grants for the purchase of electronic gear to participating schools (19 in total) in recognition of their environmental efforts.
Participating schools in Vancouver:
Lord Byng Secondary (3939 West 16th Avenue)
King George Secondary (1755 Barclay Street)
Sir Winston Churchill Secondary (7055 Heather Street)
They will be accepting your electronic goods for recycling all day today from 7:00am until 7:00pm.
