iR3: Student Ecopreneurs at Work!

The Ecopreneurs in Miss Bailey’s class at Brant Hills Public School have taken on quite a challenge! To raise funds for their school, these recycling ninjas have agreed to collect 2 tons of electronics for recycling. So what’s it in for them? They get to work with someone you know who will motivate them to achieve their goal. (And I promised to buy them lunch if they hit their 2 ton target!)

Drop off old, unused electronicsDo you have old, unused (and heavy) electronics laying around your office or home? Computer equipment, laptops, televisions, phones… anything and everything electronic. Now’s the time to pitch in for prosperity!

The big blue bin (with a side-loading door) is in the school black top zone from May 9 until May 20. Students have committed to be at the bin for an hour after school for the next two weeks. You are also invited to bring your electronics to this weekend’s Spring Fair at the school.

Drive up and ditch your old electronics for a good cause!
