Recycling to benefit school

SOUTHAVEN – Sacred Heart School will host its inaugural Robot Recycle event Saturday, April 12, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the school parking lot. They will be accepting used and discarded electronic items for recycling. Donors simply drive into the parking lot and an army of volunteers will remove the items from their cars and sort them for the trucks.

A wide variety of items are accepted including air conditioners, computers, fans, satellite boxes, speakers, keyboards, copy machines, cables and adapters, modems, printers and more. All donations are secured and sent to Fortune Sky warehouses for shredding. All hard drives will be removed from computers and destroyed either on site or at the warehouse.

The event is billed as an opportunity to clear out attics, back rooms, garages, basements and businesses of those old items and rest assured they will not end up in landfills. All proceeds will benefit the school. For a complete list of items accepted or if you are unable to bring your items to the school contact event coordinator Joe Hillenbrand, 901-603-4043, for assistance.
