From stereos to VCRs, ancient electronics make an appearance at the E-Waste Drive. Photo courtesy of Kevin Tsukii.
Though Robotics contacted local businesses, the primary targets of the E-Waste Drive remained students and community members. Students handed out fliers to local stores and homes. A promotional video was also made but not aired due to the rally schedule.
The event was a success as 205 cars stopped by the bus circle to drop off unused electronics on Saturday. GreenMouse towed the electronics to a San Jose workshop to recycle the parts that can be remade into new electronics. Raw parts will be sold, and Environmental Commission will receive 50 percent of the profit while GreenMouse will keep the other 50 percent.
