Ewate Collection Event Report
From Sunday Dec 28th through Tuesday December 30th, Electronic Synergy Foundation held an eWaste collection event at Lafortune Park in Tulsa.
As a result of this collection event, we collected 7 U-Haul trucks full of unwanted electronics,
4 of those U-hauls were full of televisions and monitors which went to Natural Evolution for recycling. The remainder went into our warehouse to be processed as scrap and re-usable products.
Our intention is to use the revenue generated from this to help build our retail channels and recycling infrastructure.
The whole thing was a win for everyone involved. Tulsa got rid of approximately 10 tons of eWaste, and we have the material to start building our recycling infrastructure.
ESF owes big THANK YOUs to all the folks involved, just to name a few:
