SY e-Cycle Drive

Spring cleaning is a snap thanks to PCC Sylvania’s Computer e-Cycling Drive! On Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Sylvania Campus will join forces with Total Reclaim, hosting the sixth annual Computer e-Cycling Drive to collect unwanted computer equipment -- computer towers, laptops, monitors, printers, keyboards, scanners and disks. For the first time, there will also be hard drive smashing on site.

Back by popular demand, block Styrofoam will also be accepted on site. Total Reclaim will process the collected material using a “"densifier"” – a powerful shredder – to reduce its volume. This will be sold to manufacturers of low-grade plastics such as picture frames.

The event is open to the general public and will take place in parking lot P10. Cost: $5 per car load; $10 per pick-up truck/SUV/van load. CASH ONLY – no checks or credit cards. And TELEVISION SETS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

For more information, contact Diane Shingledecker at (971) 722 - 4099 or at dshingle@pcc.edu.
