Plymouth TV Group Plans Electronics Recycling Event
By JENNIFER SANTOS
PLYMOUTH - Plymouth Area Community Access Television is going green.
The cable TV nonprofit and Community Recyclers of Electronic Waste will hold a community "Throw it Out for a Cause" fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Plymouth North High School on Obery Street.
For a nominal fee, South Shore residents will be able to get rid of electronic waste in a responsible manner and, in doing so, raise money for the community access TV organization.
Steve Beck of Marshfield, founder of the recycling group, began coordinating the event with the TV group as a way to help the TV group dispose of its old computers, monitors and TVs as it prepares to move into a new building at 4 Collins Ave. this fall.
Sixty percent of Saturday's proceeds will be put toward the TV group's new building capital campaign, said Carol McGilvrary, programming and membership coordinator for Plymouth Area Community Access Television.
"It's an environmental advantage to do this, because people are going to pay to get their things recycled, so why not pay a little less and see your money go back (into the community)?" Beck said.
Among items to be collected for recycling are office copiers, refrigerators, freezers, TVs, cell phones, cameras, air conditioners, computers and computer monitors, dishwashers and lawn mowers (empty of gas). The fee will be $10 per item or less, depending on the equipment.
