Hello! My name is Jazmine and I am a Grade 11 high school student from Coquitlam! This year, I am participating in the Electronic Recycling Association's (ERA) scholarship for students, where participants have to plan and execute an electronic-waste collection event in their community!
Due to the success of the previous electronic waste collection event at the Port Moody Market, I decided to do a second electronic-waste collection event this time at the Coquitlam Farmers Market (1655 Winslow Ave, Coquitlam)! I will have a booth set up where you can come by with any old, unwanted, or broken electronic waste! I am accepting anything from old laptops, computer parts, phones, printers, wires, mice, etc. that you may want to get rid of! For more information on what is accepted, please check out the project's Instagram. They can be in any state, with more broken electronics going to be recycled at ERA facilities while non-end-of-life electronics are refurbished and sent to charities and organizations around the province.
All I ask is that you put your electronics in a box or bag for organizational purposes when you come donate!
If you have any questions, please feel free to send an email!
