The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
As a certified electronics recycling organization, we seek volunteers who want to be part of the environmental mission to keep computers and other electronics out of landfills where they can pollute ground water. We disassemble and recycle the parts either for reuse, giving computers and other devices a second life, or, we send parts to other certified recycling vendors for proper disposal under state and federal law. Our Electronics Recycling Technicians will get to know what is inside computers and how they work as they participate in the recycling process.
