Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tech it Away returns to Vancouver on Earth Day April 22nd as Best Buy partners with local schools to collect and recycle old electronics.

Tech it Away - Earth Day

This is my my second year supporting the campaign and this time around there are three different Vancouver schools involved:

  • Eric Hamber Secondary School – 5025 Willow Street, Vancouver map
  • Sir Charles Tupper Secondary School – 419 East 24th Avenue, Vancouver map
  • Killarney Secondary School – 6454 Killarney Street, Vancouver map
  • Stop by any of these schools on April 22nd from 8:30am until 5:30pm to donate and recycle the following: Computers and laptops, monitors, cables and accessories, printers and fax machines, TVs, cell phones and batteries, VCRs and DVD Players.

    Participating schools each get $10,000 from Best Buy to purchase new electronic gear from their stores. As a bonus, an extra $2,000 will be awarded to the school that collects the most recyclable electronics on Thursday. This is the perfect chance to remove the clutter from your house, recycle, and support your local high school.

    You can follow the campaign on Twitter by searching for the tag #TechItAway or searching Facebook for the event in your area.
