CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Generation Green, a student-run recycling program at Marian Catholic High School, is sponsoring the fourth annual Community Electronics Recycling Drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 10 in Marian Catholic High School’s parking lot, 700 Ashland Ave.
Generation Green, which oversees the recycling program at Marian Catholic throughout the school year, includes roughly 12 Marian Catholic student volunteers who will assist with moving electronics from vehicles on the day of the event.
If it plugs in the wall, Generation Green will take it. This free service recycles unwanted or broken electronics, including computers, monitors, printers, laptops, TV's, stereo equipment, microwaves, or large household appliances. These items may be dropped off at the school’s parking lot along Joe Orr Road.
Jennifer Clifford, moderator of the event, is extremely enthused for students to make a difference through recycling in the community.
“The recycling drive just keeps on getting bigger and bigger,” Clifford said. “It’s such a valuable experience for the students involved with Generation Green, on top of working hard, the kids are able to learn the importance of recycling.”
