2010 eCycle Drive a Success!
The 2010 Spring Clean-up and eCycle Drive was a great success! The Clean-up brought in 580 cars, 270 of which dropped off computer equipment at the PCC Sylvania eCycle station. We recycled over 13 tons of computer equipment. We had 72 PCC student and staff volunteers show up to help recycle the computers - our biggest turn-out yet. Read the re-cap here.

- Saturday, May 8th, 2010 from 9am to 1pm
- What to Bring:
- Your old computer equipment - we will recycle it for free!
- Please limit 7 items per individual.
- Household items only - no businesses, please.
Students, Staff, and Faculty from PCC Sylvania led the eCycle portion of the annual Spring Cleanup, accepting old, unwanted computer equipment free of charge. PCC students triaged and sorted items before they were responsibly recycled.
We are delighted to again participate in this worthwhile event. The instructors build the event into the curriculum, so that students - in Computer Technologies, among other disciplines – have the opportunity to get practical experience at the same time they’re doing community service. It’s a win-win. Diane Shingledecker, CAS instructor and lead organizer behind the eCycle Drive
