Two Brothers Scrap Metal donated the use of a container for Mineola Middle School’s eWaste Drive, which was held on October 25. The drive brought in 8,840 pounds of electronic waste — the largest amount collected by Two Brothers since the company became involved in this event back in 2016. Residents came to the school to drop off their unwanted and unused computers, hard drives, printers, flatscreen TVs, chargers and other items.
The purpose of the drive, now in its fifth year, was to help the environment by disposing of electronics that are either no longer being used or do not work anymore; recycling electronic waste keeps it from winding up in landfills.
The event began as a project initiated by the school’s Robotics Club. Three years ago, the Robotics Club teamed up with the school’s Environmental Club to promote the Drive to the local community.
Two Brothers has participated in the eWaste Drive for the past four years. During that time, Two Brothers has hauled away 30,880 pounds — more than fifteen tons — of electronic waste. Last year, 8,140 pounds of unused electronics were hauled away. The staff at Mineola Middle School thanked Two Brothers for its support.
