Recycling your electronics on Earth Day

ST. LOUIS (KTRS) – From computers to cellphones, MERS/Goodwill is celebrating Earth Day by helping you recycle used electronics.

The local charity teamed up with the St. Louis Cardinals to host their fifth annual electronics recycling drive outside of Busch Stadium on Wednesday. The event is being staged at Busch Stadium’s Lot C, which is on the southwest corner of the stadium and across the street from Paddy O’s bar. Donations will be accepted until 6 p.m.

“Goodwill has always been known as the original recycler,” said donations coordinator Sharon Summers, “so we are able to maintain that reputation, celebrate earth day and thank our very many donors from the last 97 years.”

While today’s drive is focused on your rusted electronics, general donation items such as clothes, books and furniture will also be accepted. In addition those who donate today will receive vouchers for half-priced tickets to upcoming Cardinals games.

Regardless of today’s event, Summers said you can always donate your electronics, year-round, at any of the region’s 42 Goodwill locations. She calls donating to Goodwill a “triple play.”

“You get your tax receipt, you allow somebody to buy your quality donation at a great price and most importantly, the funds generated by the sale of your donations stay in the community,” Summers said.
