Students in the Dana Hills High School recycling club will host a free electronics recycling event on Saturday, Aug. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Dana Hills High School, 33333 Golden Lantern.
Drop off unwanted computers, monitors, televisions, cell phones, printers, ink and toner cartridges, microwaves, MP3 players, cables, wires and other electronics for recycling by All Green Electronics Recycling.
Proceeds will benefit the Dolphin Force Foundation, an independent, parent-run nonprofit organization that supports high-priority projects benefiting all students at Dana Hills High School.
Over the years, students have helped to protect the environment and curb illegal exportation of hazardous and illegal e-waste to developing nations by collecting more than 50,000 pounds of electric waste. The club’s efforts have also helped raise funds to update parts of their school such as installing security cameras and purchasing 39 new computers for the computer lab.
