E-Waste Recycling and Shredding Event Success

E-Waste Event BannerOn behalf of Morton Borough and Morton’s Recycling Committee, we would like to thank our fellow Mortonian’s and neighbors that helped make our E-Waste Recycling and Shredding Event on 9/7 a success!

We shredded over 4,000 lbs of paper and recycled a total of 16,048 lbs of electronics.  Here is a quick break down of the electronic items processed that day:

  • CPU: 3226 lbs
  • TVs & Monitors: 8709 lbs
  • Printers / Hard Copy Devices/Peripherals/Mixed Electronics: 3,869 lbs
  • Wire: 237 lbs
  • Cell Phones: 7 lbs
  • E-Waste Event Banner2That is an impressive amount of both shredding and recycling – great job, everyone!  If you missed the event, don’t worry, there will be another event like this next year for you to participate in (look for information during summer 2014).

    Thank you as well to all of our volunteers who helped out that day, as well as to those who helped publicize our event through flyers or word of mouth.  It’s the help of community members like you who made this such a success.  Keep up the great job, Mortonites!
