Mineola Middle School learners did their part for the future of the planet as they held an e-waste collection and helped keep hundreds of broken and obsolete electronics out of our landfills.
During the annual Mineola Middle School E-Waste Drive on Oct. 27, students collected 6,280 pounds of electronic waste to be recycled, a 48% increase over last year’s collection.
Community members were invited to drop off unused or broken items including printers, computers, tablets, phones, televisions and chargers during the after-school drive. Students collected and inventoried each item before adding it the heap that was hauled off for sorting and recycling by Two Brothers Scrap Metal.
