Brock community to recycle unplugged waste this week for Earth Day (April 22)

Published on April 22 2013


Earth Day is the largest civic observance in the world with more than 1 billion people participating in eco-friendly activities and events in their respective communities.

Brock University will mark Earth Day (April 22) this year by hosting a weeklong drive to collect unwanted digital clutter and electronic waste for recycling starting Monday.

“Every year, tonnes of e-waste needlessly ends up in landfills,” says Tom Saint-Ivany, chair of Brock’s Sustainability Co-ordinating Committee and Associate VP of Facilities Management. “Making the effort to recycle these materials is just one of many things that we as a community can do to help our environment.”
