The EOS will collect the eWaste for recycling. There will be some revenue generated per metric
tonne of items accepted for disposal - so the big old heavy TVs and such are happily taken away.
Afterwards, you are invited to our regular meetings at 7:30pm into the museum, it's open to all.
The presentations will be about "Responsible Electronic Waste Recycling" by Nina Digioacchino
and "Securely erasing a hard drive for disposal" by Alan German. Please check out our
meetings web page or our
facebook page for more information.
