Electronic debris -- dropped off for recycling -- lines the Bethesda Chevy Chase High School parking lot.

Bethesda Green’s second e-cycling event in partnership with Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services June 7 drew over 700 people, disposing nearly 90,000 lbs of electronic debris at the Bethesda Chevy Chase High School parking lot.  Electronics scrap recyclers E-Structors, under contract to the county, filled more than two 18-wheelers with e-waste.

Electronics recycled included small electronic appliances, computers, copiers, cords and cables (including chargers), fax machines, microwave ovens, printers, telephones, televisions and much more.

E-Structors assures the absolute destruction of all sensitive data and guarantees environmental compliance with 100 percent recycling of processed materials.  For more information, see the Bethesda Green interview with Michael Caulfield, VP Sales for E-structors,  after the December 14, 2008, e-cycling event at Walt Whitman High School

Bethesda Green and Montgomery County plan to host another e-cycling event in the fall.  Stayed tuned for details.
