Surterre Holds First Monarch Beach eWaste Drive
Posted by Claire Adams — February 15, 2012
Surterre’s first Monarch Beach area eWaste event, held at the South Shores Church parking lot in Dana Point on February 4th, did a tremendous amount of good for the environment, collecting approximately 4,452 pounds (over 2 tons) of electronic waste.
A free service to the public held on a quarterly basis in three different areas of Orange County, Surterre’s eWaste drives offer individuals an easy opportunity to keep our planet and its landfills clean. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to bring those old electronics they don’t know what to do with (clunky television sets, fax machines, printers, and the like) to these events where they will be collected and recycled. Best of all, participants don’t even have to leave their car. There are no forms to complete, and any stored data will be safely and completely eradicated.
“Our eWaste drives are just one way that we uphold our commitment to preserving the environment while helping the community,” explained Paula Ansara-Wilhelm, co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Surterre Properties®. “Nearly 40 cars drove through to drop off waste for recycling at this event. We’re so pleased that we had such a great turnout, and we are appreciative of all those who helped make our first Monarch Beach area drive a success.”
