Electronics And Bicycle Recycling Day, September 8th
September 1, 2012
Lake Lotawana Community United Methodist Church is partnering with Surplus Exchange to host an electronics recycling event from 9:00 – 12:00 Saturday, September 8th. In addition the church is partnering with RevolveKC to offer free bicycle recycling from 2:00 – 5:00 on the same Saturday. Both events will be held at the church located at Gate 1 - 28901 NE Colbern Road, Lake Lotawana.
Computer CPUs, keyboards, mice, drives, computer parts, cellphones, pagers, home phones, PDAs, game consoles, handheld games, joysticks, and controllers will be collected for free. Fees of $5 - $30 will be collected to cover the costs for transportation, demanufacturing, and recycling of printers, faxes, scanners, computer monitors, TVs, and microwaves. Visit www.wannachurch.com for cost details. Items not listed will not be collected.
In the afternoon, bring your unwanted bicycles of any size or condition, and RevolveKC will fix them up and find good homes for them.
The church is hosting these events as part of SERVE2012, a state-wide United Methodist Church day of service to our communities. Since Christians believe that we are all stewards of the Earth, the Lake Lotawana Methodist church chose an environmental theme for its community service. In addition to hosting the recycling events, members of the church will also be working to improve the landscaping and gardens around Mason Elementary School on the same Saturday. As a fourth part of SERVE2012, canned foods are being collected to help the homeless individuals served by Grand Avenue Temple United Methodist Church in Kansas City.
The community is welcome to participate by bringing outdated electronics and bikes for recycling, but community members may also get involved with this project by volunteering their labor to fill the trucks and/or work on the beautification projects at Mason Elementary School.
