E-Cycling Event
Thursday, October 3rd
12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Left hand side of back parking lot, Free for most items, $20 for TV's and CRT Monitors

Responsibly recycle your computers, LCD monitors, printers, copy machines, air conditioners, cell and cordless phones, electric heaters, dehumidifiers, microwaves, toaster ovens, electronic toys, Christmas lights and many other items with electrical cords.  Rest assured that any device containing data is destroyed and no personal information will be compromised.  Did you know that in 2012 Whole Foods Market customers in the greater Philadelphia area responsibly recycled 170,441 pounds of electronics?  We’re excited to see if we can top that number in 2013 and with your help we can!  All electronics are collected by eForce Compliance, a metro-Philadelphia certified electronic recycling company whose commitment to the highest level of environmental stewardship is unparalleled.  Most of the items are de-manufactured nearby and a majority of the materials recycled remain within the metro-Philadelphia area creating sustainable green jobs and stimulating local economy.  This event is also open to small businesses with less than 50 employees. Please spread the word!  No large appliances such as washing machines or refrigerators or rear projection TV's please. Please note that due to the increased cost of recycling leaded glass and limited markets for responsibly recycling glass, we will no longer be able to accept televisions or CRT monitors for free.  Televisions and CRT monitors can be responsibly recycled at our event for a $20 fee. If this is a hardship, please contact Ruth Harp at 610-896-8134 as Whole Foods Market will sponsor this fee for people who submit a formal request via email and are approved for sponsorship.  Please email: ruth.harp@wholefoods.com.
