Earth Day on Monday, April 22, will be celebrated by West Virginia Northern Community College with a Community Electronic Drop-off Day, sponsored by Sunset Recycling Consultants LLC and conducted on the downtown Wheeling campus from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Sunset Recycling Consultants and WVNCC have partnered to offer the free service in the parking lot of the former Honda building located on the corner of Main and 16th streets. The site will be opened soon as the college’s new Applied Technology Center.
David Seum, president/consultant of Sunset Recycling in Wheeling, said the event is for the public as well as for businesses to drop off all unusable or unneeded electronics, except televisions, computer monitors and microwaves. Items accepted include computers, networking equipment such as printers, hubs, switches and cables, fax machines, typewriters, cell phones, copiers without toner cartridges, telephone systems, VCRs and DVD players, cassette and cd players, electronic games and video game consoles, MP3 players and selected radios, among others.
Seum can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 304-214-6500 for a list of items accepted or you may visit the company’s website at http://www.sunsetrecyclingconsultants.webs.com for further information.
Reiterating the drop-off day is a free event, Seum added that those bringing in items will have the opportunity, if they wish, to donate to a college scholarship fund that would benefit WVNCC students in the electronic technologies. “Donations will be accepted whether you have something to recycle or not,” he said.
Steve Lippiello, chief financial officer and vice president of administrative services at WVNCC, said, “Northern has partnered with David in the past for similar drop-off days at all three campuses, and the support internally and from the community has been outstanding. We are pleased to be able to offer this service once again and particularly on Earth Day.”
