Electronics Recycling Collection Events

Collection Events are very popular with towns and municipalities. The event serves as a great way to collect e-waste from residents while promoting the proper disposal of old electronics. It’s also a great way to celebrate Earth Day!

Many municipalities are seeking to promote the proper disposal of e-waste to their residents. These towns receive such large quantities of electronic waste at their collection facilities that holding Collection Events several times a year helps to alleviate much of their work load. SAMR handles a large part of the logistical concerns in setting up and holding an event such as: the setup, packaging, transportation, and safe removal of all gathered materials.

Of course, municipalities aren’t the only ones that can hold electronics recycling collection events. Many of our clients are businesses both small and large, that simply wish to promote recycling to their employees or just don’t have the room to fit one of our e-waste recycling containers at their facility.

We can also customize these events to meet your specifications such as time, duration, the number of laborers and vehicles required etc. Once we have tailored your event to your needs, then SAMR will handle everything to run the event. We will bring the trucks, equipment and man-power you require. SAMR really makes hosting a collection event an incredibly easy and fun experience for everyone involved while helping to encourage residents, employees, and friends to properly recycle their used electronics.

How does it work?

Once you’ve decided that you would like to hold a collection event you’ll need to get in contact with an event coordinator at SAMR. You can do this via e-mail by using our contact us page or you may call us directly at 1.866.509.SAMR (7267)

Our collection event coordinators will be more than happy to guide you through the set-up process. Collection events are typically run on Saturdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. But SAMR doesn’t limit you to just Saturdays. We can hold your event any day of the week at any time that’s convenient for you. We can even hold an event to span multiple days.
