Electronics Recycling Event

Durango Montessori is again hosting this Annual Community Event!

We have run this event since May 2018!  

Did you know:

 

  • This year, 5.3 billion mobile phones were thrown away in 2022 according to the International waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) forum

  • Electronic waste only takes up 2% of our landfills but accounts for 70% of our total toxic waste production. Despite these alarming numbers, only about 20% of the e-waste produced each year is recycled. The United States is the biggest producer of e-waste. Every year, US residents and businesses discard approximately 100 million cell phones, over 41 million computers, and over 20 million TV sets by throwing them into landfills when they become broken or outdated. - United Electronic Recycling

The Electronics Recycling Event allows us to educate the public and our students about the importance of recycling and specifically electronics. Additionally, this fundraiser will specifically benefit our Learn to Farm and Homestead at James Ranch Education Program for 40 students to get hands-on/outdoor experience!
