E-Waste Collection at Wilshire Crest Elementary School

On Saturday, April 21 (the day before Earth Day), Wilshire Crest Elementary School (5241 W. Olympic Blvd./ NE corner of Olympic & Sycamore) will hold an e-waste collection from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in its east parking lot (enter from Olympic Blvd.)   This is a great way to clean out your closets, houses, garages and offices (yes, businesses can donate, too!), help the environment and make money for a very deserving neighborhood school all at the same time.

The school will get paid by the pound, so the more they collect, the more money they make.  Here are the items they can and cannot accept – please start saving them now!
