Adirondack Recycling Program


Members of the AWF have been collecting empty laser and inkjet cartridges and used cell phones from the community. They are sending the waste products to companies that recycle all of the material.

Schuyler Falls, NY, March 27, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The Adirondack Wilderness Foundations “AWF” Recycling activity is having a positive impact on the Adirondack National Park and also the world in which we live. They are helping to reduce the amount of non-biodegradable waste that is going into landfills.

Members of the AWF have been collecting empty laser and inkjet cartridges and used cell phones from the community. They are sending the waste products to companies that recycle all of the material. Cell phones contain toxic metals that can pollute the environment and threaten human health. When recycled responsibly, the metals can be put back into circulation, thus decreasing the need for new metal mining. Cell phone memories will be wiped clean of all information.

Help them make a difference by setting up a responsible cell phone recycling program in your community or workplace. If interested in demonstrating a commitment to the environment free of charge, contact the AWF via their e-mail address at adwildfoundation@aol.com.

Community and business supporters can also mail their cartridges and cell phones to the following location, 1680 Guide Board Rd, Schuyler Falls, NY 12985. Local pickup by one of their officers may also be possible.
