In mid-January our school had an e-cycling drive. The drive was to collect technology such as old laptops, monitors, TVs, printers, and more to be recycled properly. Some of Mr. Cofer’s classes even helped out with the drive by packing the old electronics to get them ready to be shipped.

“Before this year, I had never thought about recycling electronics differently from my other recycling, but since taking GEI and becoming involved with the Sustainability Club, my eyes have been opened to the true dangers of not recycling electronics,” said junior Ashley Wendt, who is a student in Mr. Cofer’s GEI class. “Since helping to start the Cape Henry e-cycling program and helping to run it, I feel incredibly accomplished as if I’ve helped, along with many other wonderful volunteers, do something really important for the school and our one and only earth”.

This event lasted two days and the final results were better than expected.

“We sent out 10 full pallets of electronics,” Mr. Cofer confirmed. “We were only estimating between five and seven. CHC was hoping to promote public awareness and to encourage our community members to dispose of their old, outdated electronics in a safe and environmentally sound manner. We received very positive feedback from the vast majority of our participating members.”

With these results, Mr. Cofer hopes that there will be another drive soon. He is even hopeful to make e-cycling happen on an annual or even biannual basis at Cape Henry in years to come.
