With “green initiatives” and “going green” campaigns popping up everywhere, it is safe to say that the idea of recycling and sustainability is catching on. This case is no different at America’s Central Port.
Since the beginning of 2014, the Port has taken strides to improve its own sustainability, and help local residents and organizations do the same as well. Strong efforts began back in May when the Port hosted its first public electronic recycling event in cooperation with RNA WorldWide. This event drew in over 16,000 pounds of out of date, old and unwanted electronics and scrap materials that would have otherwise been more clutter added to our landfills.
Not only did this event help local residents and businesses in the Tri-City area, but it also allowed the Port to clean up over 200 abandoned TV’s and appliances left by former tenants.
The positive feedback from community members and tenants was so great that another event was planned for late August. While the total amounts collected this time around was not as high, the event was still very successful in helping local residents and businesses clean up their clutter.
America’s Central Port plans to keep the positive trend rolling. More information will be following, but for now mark your calendars for our next e-cycle event:
