Supermileage Team Needs Old Electronics!

Did you know that portable electronics like cell phones contain toxic substances including Arsenic, Antimony, Beryllium, Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Nickel, and Zinc? The cadmium from a single phone is capable of polluting 158,200 gallons of water or the equivalent of 1.2 million 16-ounce drinks. These toxic substances leach into soil and groundwater from landfills. To help prevent the pollution of our environment, the Supermileage team is conducting a portable electronics recycling drive. We are collecting old, used, and broken, cell phones, Ipads, tablets, inkjet cartridges, ipods, and smart watches. The devices can be old, broken, and worn out. They do not need to be working or have their charger. Help the environment by bringing your old electronics to Mr. Goodman’s room to recycle and receive a free popsicle. This drive will run until September 27.
