Electronic waste disposed of properly

With our early spring/summer weather, and abundance of fun activities going on, it was gratifying to see our community’s dedication to electronics recycling in Homer. more than 80 individuals and 20 businesses joined dozens of volunteers and supporters to pull off yet another successful event on April 23.  

With invaluable in-kind support from Total Reclaim, the Kenai Peninsula Borough, SBS, Totem Ocean Trailer Express and Kar-A-Van Transfers, our community ensured that tons of electronic waste will be disposed of properly, dismantled safely and ethically, and re-purposed, reducing the need for new landfills — or new sources for those raw materials.

Generous support also was received from Jay Brant, Homer Veterinary Clinic, HEA, Loopy Lupine, KBBI and K-WAVE.

A very special thanks to the many volunteers who cheerfully devoted their time on a busy Saturday, and the other supporters and sponsors that provided great meals and snacks to us during the day: Safeway, Save-U-More, Two Sisters Bakery, Cosmic Kitchen and Fat Olives.

Thanks again, Homer, for demonstrating your commitment to community action on Earth Day.
