Tons of unwanted electronics saved from the landfillUMMS hosts two employee electronics recycling events
December 2, 2011
Michael Green, MD, PhD, drops off electronics for recycling, adding to the already large pile.
Almost 6,500 pounds were collected at the South Street campus in Shrewsbury on Tuesday, Nov. 29, according to Melissa Lucas, sustainability and energy efficiency manager. Even more was collected on the Worcester campus on Friday, Dec. 4, as a pile accumulated outside the truck after it reached capacity and more people arrived with contributions. A final tally will be known in a few days.
For those who missed this event, Lucas said there will be another in the spring.
