Date:

Share post:

The Verona Music Parents will be having an electronics recycling drive to benefit the high school music program from Monday, August 23 through Thursday, August 26. Drop off your old gear and gadgets outside the band room on the Sampson Drive side of VHS from 6 to 9 p.m.  Verona Music Parents will be accepting cell phones, laptop computers, inkjet cartridges, MP3 players, digital cameras, digital video cameras, handheld game systems, GPS devices, radar detectors, and electronic book readers.

The Verona Music Parents want you to know that recycling also benefits the planet: The mining of metals for consumer electronics and jewelry is the No. 1 cause of toxic pollution in the U.S. and every year, Americans throw out about 130 million cell phones, adding toxic substances such as arsenic, antimony, beryllium, and cadmium to our landfills.
