McClellan, CA, April 22, 2009 – McClellan Park, formerly the McClellan air force base, is offering their tenants the service of properly disposing of their e-waste. Based on contribution, Sims Recycling Solutions will be donating a portion of the proceeds back to the Twin Rivers Unified School District. Every business that participates will be acknowledged. This donation process is easily done and doesn’t take much time. It is a simple 1,2,3 process. (1) A business or participant must call Dianna Sorby at (916) 772-5681, to schedule a time for Sims Recycling Solutions to drop off the box. The box is a typical Gaylord box (4’x4’) so businesses must have the indoor space to accommodate for this. (2) It is up to the participant to fill the box with e-waste. (3) The week prior to Earth Day, (April 22, 2009) the participant can call and schedule the most convenient time for Sims Recycling Solutions to pick up that filled box. Therefore based on the amount received, Sims will give back a portion of the proceeds to the Twin Rivers Unified School District. The most desirable electronics for this collection and donation are televisions, laptops and computer monitors. However Sims Recycling Solutions will accept the following: Cell Phones, Telephones, Printers, Speakers, Keyboards, Mice, PDAs, Radios, Stereos, MP3s, DVDs, CD Players, and VCRs (etc). Sims Recycling Solutions cannot accept household appliances, microwaves, batteries, toner/ink cartridges, and cans/bottles. Sims Recycling Solutions held an ongoing campaign last fall with the City of Roseville and helped donate over $7,000 to the outdoor expansion of IDEAscape, an environmental learning center for children. It proved to be a success and with the help of these businesses the Twin Rivers Unified School District can raise some extra funding.
