On Saturday June 23, 2012, the Hudsonville Area Chamber of Commerce hosted an electronics recycling drive to give back as a community, which turned out to be an enormous success.
People all over Hudsonville came out to River City Flooring, who hosted the event, to show support for their community and the environment. Overall 17,878 pounds of electronics were donated, as well as $653 in cash donations.
All the electronics we collected by a local recycler, Comprenew, which is a non-profit organization with a mission to benefit the community. Shelley Huard, Sales Representative from Comprenew said, “It was wonderful to pair up with the Hudsonville Area Chamber of Commerce and Love INC. and be able to benefit the whole community with the recycle drive.” Comprenew does not ship e-Waste overseas, which is part of their zero-landfill policy requiring that all e-Waste received is recycled, refurbished, or reused.
