Schrock Recycling Event a Huge Success

Last weekend Schrock Innovations held its first ever electronics recycling event. No one really knew what to expect because this was the first time anyone had held a recycling event restricted to old computers and old cell phones.

All of Schrock’s employees were on staff that weekend and the original plan was to document the number of pieces coming in as they arrived. In the first 15 minutes that plan went out the window.

While I was on the air doing the KFOR Compute This radio show, Schrock had taken in more than 500 pieces of e-waste in Lincoln and 200 in Omaha.

After the 2-day event ended on Sunday we had collected approximately 1.5 75-foot tractor trailers full of monitors, printers, scanners, towers, cell phones, cords and accessories.

Take a look at the pictures of the event on our Facebook page!

    Wow thats awesome Thor! Look at all those old computers! Quite funny how there is a whole row of those tiny machines made by HP i think it is… on the bottom row. We had those in our schools back when I went to High school which was about 5 years ago.

    That sounds like a real successful drive, Thor. Great to see also the people’s enthusiasm and initiative to participate so well.

    It was a huge success! More activities like this should be encouraged. Congratulations for a job well done!
