Since 2009, event participants have recycled nearly 83 tons of electronic waste and nearly 18.5 tons of paper for recycling.
The East Alabama Recycling Partnership (EARP) is represented by solid waste management professionals from Auburn University, Lee County, and the cities of Auburn and Opelika. The vision of the partnership is to establish a comprehensive and coordinated regional recycling program to divert materials from landfills. Sharing ideas and resources have enhanced the partner's recycling programs and provides a strong foundation for the future. Since the formation of this partnership in 2009, five grant awards have been funded by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) totaling nearly $1 million for equipment and materials.
How to help reduce electronics waste
1) “Consider the need” - Ultimately the most sustainable “option” is the item that you don't need to purchase.
2) “Does the purchase match my/our values?” - What is your vision of a sustainable world, what is the shared vision of the Auburn Family... and does this purchase fit with those values?
3) “Close the recycling loop” - For global recycling efforts to work, people need to purchase recycled-content products.
