Every May, Alderman John Pope leads his 10th ward with a handful of green events around the community to encourage residents to go green and help keep our community clean. For three years, we have helped Alderman Pope achieve this goal by offering free electronics recycling to local residents and businesses for the entire month.
During his 13 years as Alderman of Chicago’s 10th ward, Pope has been known for his green initiatives and strong belief in creating a sustainable community. “Our annual green events are important because they help us educate community residents about sustainability programs that we feel are really important,” said Pope. “Residents have had a tremendous response to these programs over the last five years and we’re excited to see how we can make it an even bigger success in the years to come.”
We are happy to announce that the drive has once again been a great success. Thanks to the help of the employees at the Alderman’s office, and the efforts by both parties to spread the word about the drive, we were able to collect nearly 1,400 pounds of e-waste.
Although the month-long e-waste recycling drive has now come to a close, we want to remind all of our community residents that we offer free e-waste recycling at our location in Chicago year-round. Residents are allowed to bring up to 10 pieces of electronic equipment to be recycled at no cost to them. Our recycling process includes data and hard drive destruction, plus 100% recycling.
