Your junk helps families in need
8/1/2013 (Updated 7:02:01 PM)GREENE -- One man's trash is another man's treasure. Now that old 1990's computer collecting dust in your basement can help a family in need.
The Impact Project is holding a "We'll Take Your Junk Day" on August 10th. For the first time in Chenango County, residents can drop off used electronics for recycling free of charge. The Impact Project gets paid for the collected electronics and that all goes to a good cause.
"We've selected three families, two in Broome County and one in Chenango County hat we want to assist here by the end of the year," said Jim Willard, Director of The Impact Project. "We're going to take the monies that we get from this and we're going to put it in a fund that goes to families that are specifically in need. So, in a sense, we're going to recycle the money that we're going to get, into helping families that need the help here in the Southern Tier."
Used electronics can be dropped off at 24 Cherry Street in Greene from 8 am to noon on Saturday. Anyone looking to unload used electronics, The Impact Project is accepting: computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, vacuums, laptops, cables, ptinters, fax machines, copiers, fans, scanners, VCRs, DVD Players, cell phones, phones, toasters, TVs, and more.
