Earth Day 2015: Save the Date

As a pleasant Growing Green coincidence, this year's Earth Day Celebration at UMass Chan Medical School falls on the actual Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school lobbies.

Earth Day 2015 will feature a mix of campus favorites, including local food and craft vendors as well as energy efficiency products and services. It's also a day to bring in any old computers, radios, small appliances or consumer electronics that have been piling up in the basement or garage.

"Earth Day is a great annual event and we look forward to helping the campus community access sustainable products and services," said Suzanne Wood, sustainability and energy manager at UMass Chan.

The electronics collection will take place in the Pine Tree parking lot. Staff from E.L.Harvey & Sons, the campus's waste management contractor, will collect almost any electronic device, with the exception of televisions, CRT computer monitors, air conditioners or dehumidifiers—those items will not be accepted. Most other electronic items will be taken free of charge.
