The Holy Trinity School seventh grade is having a community service and fundraising project to help save the environment.

The students are conducting a free electronic waste drive-through drop-off fundraiser at the school, 3111 Tierra de Dios Drive in El Dorado Hills, on Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Participants won’t even have to get out of their car. Just drive up and pop the trunk or open the door and the electronic items will be unloaded.

The cost for this service is free.

There is also a pre-collection service for those unable to drop off their e-waste on April 13. Call 530-306-4741 and a volunteer will come to your home or business for a pick-up.

The collection day is sponsored by CEAR INC, California Electronic Asset Recovery (cearinc.com), a California state approved electronic waste collector and recycler.

Items being accepted are: monitors, televisions, desktop and notebook PCs, VCRs, stereo equipment, speakers, keyboards, mice, PDAs, digital cameras, zip drives, telephones, cell phones, printers, copiers, laser and multifunction scanners and fax machines, microwaves, small household appliances such as toasters, mixers and blenders, vacuum cleaners with the dust bag removed.

Items not accepted are: large household appliances (i.e. refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.), furniture, hazardous household waste including: batteries, car batteries, paint, pesticides, used oil, cleaning supplies, fluorescent light bulbs, tires, etc.

For optimal security, CEAR INC shreds all computer hard drives. The secure facility is monitored 24/7 by surveillance cameras. CEAR is also a proud member of the Basel Action Network’s responsible e-steward recyclers (e-stewards.org).

The event is intended to teach the children ways they can help save the environment while providing a free, community service project to El Dorado County residents. Volunteers will also remove toner cartridges from printers and fax machines for recycling and shred all hard drives to ensure security and confidentiality for the donors.
