Electronics Collection Day at RING – Jan. 4, 2014

Once again, the RING Garden is hosting an Electronics Collection Day on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014 from 10 am to 4 pm. These electronics will be reused, if possible, or recycled into their constituent materials, if not.

This process keeps toxic materials out of landfills, conserves natural resources, reduces pollution, and preserves the labor involved with manufacture. It’s a good thing! Spread the word… everywhere!
