Regional High School Electronics Recycling
Fundraiser Huge Success
Triton Regional High School’s Music Parent Organization teamed up with Visiting Geeks, a Merrimac-based on-site computer repair company, to coordinate an electronics recycling fundraiser this past Saturday at the school. After just four hours of recycling, TMPO receives a check from Visiting Geeks for $1632.
"We were thrilled with the community support," said Sharron Senter, Visiting Geeks chief recycling coordinator. "One recycler had more than 15 electronics jammed in their car to donate. Recyclers all the way from Newburyport and Salisbury came to donate their electronics, and of course, many Triton parents.”
Visiting Geeks coordinates electronics recycling fundraisers with North Shore schools as part of their community outreach program. Schools receive forty percent of the recycling funds collected. Schools provide the volunteers and get the word out to parents and community members, while Visiting Geeks provides the trucks and manages the safe disposal of the electronics.
