E-Not-Really-Waste



Room 7 kindergartners helped gather items when a truck came to pick up our e-waste donations yesterday morning. Our third annual e-waste drop-off ended Friday. The items were waste to the families who dropped them off, but they provide a livelihood for those who separate the metal and circuitry from the plastic, and reduce the energy required to mine and manufacture new materials. E-waste that’s not recycled ends up in landfills or incinerators, which can release harmful toxins into the air. Only about 25 percent of e-waste in the U.S. is recycled—but we’re doing our part!
