Posted by Amy Plotkin — September 27, 2012
Surterre Properties® recent Laguna Beach area eWaste drive, held at the Laguna Beach School District parking lot on September 15, did a tremendous amount of good for the environment, collecting approximately 10,411 pounds (over 5 tons) of electronic waste, and shredding approximately 4,340 pounds of confidential documents on-site. For this event, Surterre and the Laguna Beach community’s commitment to ProShred’s environmentally conscious shredding and recycling service saved 39 trees.
At the three Laguna Beach eWaste events held this year, a total of 143 trees were saved and approximately 16,080 pounds of confidential documents were shred on-site.
A free service to the public held on a quarterly basis in 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), and paper to be shredded by ProShred to these events where they will be 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®. “This recent event saw 250 cars come through to drop off waste for recycling. We’re thrilled at how well-received these drives continue to be.”
