earth-day-5Rs

Help celebrate Earth Day by recycling your old electronics!

From Monday, April 13 until Monday, April 20, Next Step Recycling will leave donation bins at Charlemagne. Anything with a cord can be dumped in the bins – electronic toys, cell phones, monitors, extra computer and phone cables, broken strings of holiday lighting, laptops, keyboards, mice, hair dryers, blenders, monitors, palm pilots, zip drives, coffee makers, toasters…. NextStep will refurbish everything they can and recycle what can not be repaired.

Can’t get your stuff to school that week? No worries. For the month of April, drop off your electronics at NextStep (2101 W 10th Ave, M-Sat, 8:30-5pm). Just tell them to credit your donation to Charlemagne.

Several schools in Eugene are participating. The school that collects the most pounds during the week will win a $200 gift certificate to the NewStep ReUse Store. The winner will be announced onApril 22nd!
