Clow Valve Sponsors Earth Day e-Cycling Event
April 20, 2015
On Saturday, April 18, 2015 the Mahaska County residents were provided the opportunity to recycle their outdated electronic equipment. Clow Valve Company in cooperation with Mahaska Communication Group (MCG) organized a Saturday morning event called ‘Earth Day e-Cycling Event’.
The residents of Mahaska County were notified how to drop off their outdated electronic equipment such as computers, computer monitors, televisions, video game systems, stereos, keyboards, printers, VCRs, cell phones, and laptops to be recycled free-of-charge. On the day of the event, volunteers from MCG as well as Clow unloaded vehicles of electronic equipment to be recycled.
Within four hours, the recycling event accumulated approximately 45,000 to 50,000 pounds of electronic equipment to be recycled according to Eddie Pierson, Mahaska Communication Group. The electronic equipment is 97% recycled at the Midwest Electronic Recycling center in Walford, Iowa.
Great job Team Clow!
