WHOLE FOODS MARKET WYNNEWOOD PARKING LOT, FREE FOR MOST ELECTRONICS – TELEVISIONS AND CRT MONITORS $20 EACH
Responsibly recycle your computers, LCD monitors, printers, copy machines, air conditioners, cell and cordless phones, electric heaters, dehumidifiers, microwaves, toaster ovens, electronic toys, Christmas lights and many other items with electrical cords. Rest assured that any device containing data is destroyed and no personal information will be compromised. Did you know that in 2013 Whole Foods Market customers responsibly recycled 104,061 pounds of electronics at the Wynnewood store? We’re excited to see if we can top that number in 2014 and with your help we can! All electronics are collected by eForce Compliance, a metro-Philadelphia certified electronic recycling company whose commitment to the highest level of environmental stewardship is unparalleled. Most of the items are de-manufactured nearby and a majority of the materials recycled remain within the metro-Philadelphia area creating sustainable green jobs and stimulating local economy. This event is also open to small businesses with less than 50 employees. Please spread the word! No large appliances such as washing machines or refrigerators or rear projection TV’s please. Please note that due to the increased cost of recycling leaded glass and limited markets for responsibly recycling glass, we will no longer be able to accept televisions or CRT monitors for free. Televisions and CRT monitors can be responsibly recycled at our event for a $20 fee. If this is a hardship, please contact Ruth Harp at 610-896-8134 as Whole Foods Market will sponsor this fee for people who submit a formal request via email and are approved for sponsorship. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance or special arrangements for drop off.
On Saturday and Sunday, October 5th and 6th, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., residents are invited to participate in the Township’s annual free Fall Cleanup Weekend.
This opportunity to dispose of unwanted refuse and recyclables, household appliances, textiles, plastic, glass, newsprint, aluminum and plain old trash will take place at the Koegel Public Works Complex, N. 1300 Woodbine Avenue, in Penn Valley.
“Township crews will be on hand to help residents unload,” stated Don Cannon, Director of Public Works. “We simply ask that participants provide proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, at the time they check in.” Non-profit organizations will also have representatives on hand to collect unwanted computers, bicycles, furniture, clothing, and other items that can benefit those less fortunate.
The recycling drop-off center is also open year-round, Monday—Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Complex. Residents who are unable to attend the Fall Cleanup Weekend can take refuse to the Public Works Complex throughout the year and are only charged four cents per pound (with a minimum charge of 80 cents.) Call (610) 667-1952 for more information.
Please note that no household hazardous waste will be accepted at the Fall Cleanup Weekend. The Township will host a Montgomery County Household Hazardous Waste Collection on SUNDAY, October 20th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Koegel Public Works Complex.
