Bipolar Insights Education Center is having an e-waste fundraising event on Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Raley’s parking lot, 166 Placerville Drive in Placerville.
Do some spring cleaning and help Bipolar Insights to continue serving El Dorado County with valuable services for those with the disorder and families.
Bring e-waste including: 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, etc. to the front of the parking lot.
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, water heaters, tires, etc. will not be accepted.
Bipolar Insights, a successful support group for 15 years, now an education center, needs funds to reach those in need and continue outreach programs such as Web videos at bipolarinsights.com to educate the public.
The Electronic Waste Drop off Fundraiser is free and donors won’t have to get out of their cars. Pop the trunk or open the door and volunteers will unload the equipment.
Donors will need to give their name and address for state records.
The drive is sponsored by CEAR INC. California Electronic Asset Recovery, a California state approved electronic waste collector and recycler, cearinc.com.
