KCCB electronics recycling
Keep Cocke County Beautiful, executive director Meka Henderson says the November 3, America Recycles Day event held at Lowe’s, was a success. “With around fifty-two households participating, we collected 4,682 pounds of electronics. Ecyclers USA was on hand to help with the collection and disposal of the electronic devices. The firm strives to operate as a zero landfill facility. This company adheres to the strictest data security standards as set forth by the Department of Defense,” Henderson said. “Salvageable items were wiped clean to be refurbished, while others were dismantled into raw materials for recycling.” Along with the electronics collection, KCCB accepted 30 pairs of eyeglasses that have been donated to the local Lion’s Club chapter. Batteries were also collected and given to recyclers. Thirty pounds of clothing and bedding was given to the Newport Animal Shelter to be used for the animals. And about five pounds of plastic bag and film were collected for recycling as well. Says Henderson, “Thank you for keeping these items out of the landfill and for your participation in helping to keep our county a beautiful place to live.”
