Free e-Waste Recycling event at Intero Real Estate San Mateo

Did you know 2.5 million tons of e-Waste is created each year? 82% of it ends up in landfills unrecycled. Help us change this! Tell your family, friends, and co-workers to bring their e-Waste to Intero Real Estate on:

Saturday, January 29, 2011 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
1100 Park Place, San Mateo
(in the parking lot just east of Whole Foods)

We take all computer & electronic equipment. Visit www.EarthCareRecycling.com for a complete list of acceptable items.

E-waste re-cycle event San Mateo 1-29-11

All proceeds will benefit the Intero Foundation, funding grants to children’s charities in our communities. 
This is the time to clear out such things as old cell phones, used lap top batteries, computer monitors and such
Never, never throw them away in the trash or recycle bin.

eWaste accumulates very slowly and so it just gets put in some obscure drawer or placed out of the way in the garage. For instance here in my office I have an old phone and charger, a broken video camera and a laptop battery that gave up long ago.

We all know recycling is the right thing to do. Now you have the opportunity to recycle electronic waste and help children.  The Intero Foundation has partnered with Earth Care Recycling and is accepting Electronic Waste for recycling at the Intero Real Estate Services office parking lot in San Mateo on Saturday, January 29th, 2011. That’s right, just bring those old cell phones, computer monitors, keyboards and all the other electronic stuff you’ve been meaning to recycle to the Intero Real Estate Services office parking lot at 1100 Park Place, San Mateo on Saturday, January 29th, 2011 and we’ll take care of the rest.

Now here’s the really good part….EarthCare Recycling will donate 50% of the proceeds from all the recycled eWaste to the Intero Foundation. The Intero Foundation provides grants to local non-profits that are dedicated to helping children in need and children in crisis. The Foundation has funded grants totaling more that $170,000 in 2010.
So remember, the more electronic waste you can bring by the Intero San Mateo office on Saturday, January 29th
the more the Intero Foundation can grant to non-profits that assist children in need and in crisis.
