Londonderry High hosts electronics drive


Derry News

---- — LONDONDERRY — Anyone with unwanted or outdated computers, televisions and printers can donate them for a good cause.

The Londonderry High School International Club and PTSO host an electronics recycling drive Saturday, March 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the high school’s main parking lot on Mammoth Road.

The PTSO will use proceeds to support scholarships and teacher grants while the International Club will use money raised to support the club’s upcoming International Night May 9.

That annual event offers games, activities and food representing many different countries. There will be live entertainment, including music and dancing.

“The purpose is to raise awareness and educate people on other cultures and also to raise money for a particular cause,” club advisor Donna Chisolm said.

This year’s charity is Heifer International.

At the recycling event, people can bring in all unused or unwanted electronics, including computers, televisions, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, VCRs and phones for a small fee.

All items collected will go to be recycled in a responsible manner through Recycle USA.

In addition to the recycling drive, the LHS Class of 2014 will hold a yard sale that day from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of the high school. Money raised will go to support the class senior gift this year.

Information about recycling electronics and a list of acceptable items to bring to the drive is available at recycleusa-llc.com.
