On April 20, Integrated Building Systems will host its 6th annual Earth Day Electronics Recycling Drive from 8 am to 2 pm at 950 Michigan Avenue, Columbus, OH 43215. Let’s keep electronic devices out of the landfill!
This event takes place rain or shine. Please follow signs directing you to line up northbound on Michigan Avenue. Simply pull up to the curb, stay in your vehicle, and volunteers will unload your recyclable items for you!
We’re proud to partner with Community Computer Alliance for electronic recycling. CCA is a nonprofit that offers workforce development to individuals with Autism and other developmental disabilities. People in CCA’s workforce programs learn valuable job skills as they dismantle, sort, and rebuild the electronics collected at recycling drives.
All electronic data and personal information from computers is professionally erased by a secured, three-pass scrub of the hard drives. Any electronics recycled are considered donations to CCA, which can offer a tax receipt. Just ask when you drop off your items!
