About this event

Join us for our safe, drive-through electronics recycling event, and be part of a 'double-green' community effort! ForestPlanet is working with eRecyc, an R2 certified recycling firm that has years of experience in the proper disposal of electronic devices, including computers, monitors, scanners, printers, cell phones, fax machines, CDs, VCR/DVD players, and so on.

Regarding data security, our vendor eRecyc guarantees that all hard-drives will undergo physical destruction (shredding), or a three-pass data wipe using Department of Defense certified software.

eRecyc normally charges a modest per-piece disposal fee, e.g. $5 per laptop computer, but for this event all prices are reduced by 10%! A full price list can be found here.

ForestPlanet, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 organization that focuses on supporting reforestation projects all over the world, and...

We will plant 10 trees for each load of electronics items received!

  • It's very helpful for us to know who's coming and what you're bringing!

About ForestPlanet:

ForestPlanet plants trees where they will have the greatest benefit to the soil, local habitat, the environment, and local communities. We want this event to raise enough funds to plant 10,000+ trees in the just-announced Irente Planting site, which will quickly

  • Stabilize soils
  • Help the land retain rainwater
  • Provide income and food security to local populations
  • Provide habitat for the region's wildlife

For example, these photos were taken just two years apart, and illustrate the amazing transformative power of a properly executed reforestation project.
