AP Environmental Science and AHS Baseball is sponsoring a free E-Waste Drive. 
Saturday, January 24th from 9-2 pm 
Parking lot on the corner of Duarte and El Monte.

We would very much appreciate all of your donations!
By recycling your E-Waste you help the planet in the following ways:
For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs of copper, 772 lbs of silver, 75 lbs of gold, and 33 lbs of palladium can be recovered. It helps to preserve our natural resources
Recycling 1 million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year.
The disposal of electronics in properly managed municipal solid waste landfills does not threaten human health and the environment.
E-waste recycling contributes to eliminating ten major categories of air pollutants and eight major categories of water pollutants.
