PECI environmental students help divert e-waste


PECIewasteBy the end of the event, Saturday, 92 vehicles had been driven to the back parking lot at PECI and the electronics waste dumpster was full to capacity. PECI Environmental Club students were pleased to be keeping that material out of landfills.

“Community response was wonderful,” said Janet Curran, PECI teacher. “Those who brought in old electronics offered to help in other ways as well. In addition to making cash donations, many people took the time to thank the Environmental Club students personally for their time and effort. One gentleman went home and printed extra posters for the group, and another put his trailer to use hauling computers from a storage area to the designated drop-off point. Still another offered the use of his truck to transport devices that had been dropped off at the Humane Society building.”

Calvin Gaudet, from the schoo board IT department, was instrumental in co-ordinating the collection and storage of e-waste from PECI’s evergreen computer upgrading program. Curran said his work gave the campaign a terrific boost this semester.
