TAMC to collect electronics for recycling on September 20

Release Date: 08/21/2017

Aroostook County  -  Due to popular demand, TAMC will once again be offering the opportunity to bring used, broken and unwanted electronic devices for proper disposal, free of charge, this fall.  The electronics recycling collection day is planned for Wednesday, September 20, from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at TAMC’s A.R. Gould Memorial Hospital campus on Academy Street in Presque Isle.
 
For nearly two decades, TAMC has cared for the planet by actively participating in electronics recycling, but for the past three years, they have also been co-sponsoring a special electronics recycling day with partner Electronics End, LLC, and extending the event into the community.  
 
“We have been amazed at the response from the community during these events,” said Mark Bourgoin, organizer of the event.  “Properly disposing of these electronic items keeps harmful material out of the environment and allows for recycling of reusable elements, thus improving the sustainability of earth’s resources.”
 
Items that will be accepted include: computer monitors, network servers, TVs, desktop printers, digital frame pictures, cellphones, laptops, game consoles, computer towers, data/electrical cables, FAX machines, scanners, copiers, speakers, keyboards, stereos, DVD/VHS players, and overhead projectors. They are unable to accept light bulbs or batteries at this event.
 
The electronic recycling items will be accepted at the maintenance garage near the rear of the campus.  Directional signs will be posted to direct people on September 20.
 
For additional information regarding the electronics recycling event, please contact Mark Bourgoin at (207) 768-4349 or by email at mbourgoin@emhs.org.
