At All Green Electronics Recycling, we do our best to keep electronics out of landfills, but we couldn’t do it without the help of our partners—or businesses and organizations that have teamed up with us to collect e-waste.
Today, we want to shine the spotlight on one partner in particular: StorAmerica.
Our partnership with StorAmerica began almost a year ago on April 15, 2010. Since then, StorAmerica has collected over 250,000 pounds of electronic waste at its 32 permanent drop-off locations in California.
To put that into perspective, this is the equivalent of preventing over 320,000 pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere! That is the same as:
- Recycling 4,111,201 plastic bottles
- Recycling 2,151,315 aluminum cans
- Saving 54,661 gallons of gasoline
- Saving 1125 barrels of oil
- Saving 20,313 propane tanks
- Planting 12,423 trees
That’s incredible, isn’t it?
Not only is StorAmerica our partner-in-crime when it comes to keeping e-waste out of landfills, they are also helping us support the community. Three locations in Riverside (Leave-It Lock-It Self Storage, AllSafe Freeway Self Storage, and Country Club Self Storage) have teamed up with us to host one massive e-waste collection event to benefit the American Cancer Society. This event will happen on April 23rd at three different locations in Riverside.
We want to give a big thank you to StorAmerica for helping us keep e-waste out of landfills!
