BizStream Collects 1,648 Pounds of Electronic Waste During 2015 Spring Electronics Recycling Drive

Team BizStream, constantly works towards a fit, healthy, and socially responsible lifestyle that includes recycling whenever possible. For the past few years we have implemented internal recycling programs that properly recycles our cans, bottles, cardboard, plastics, glass items and unneeded electronics. Most times, our recycling bin is overflowing well before the pick-up date. In 2014 we decided to open up our electronics recycling program to the local community and had great results!

Due to the great success we had with our 2014 Electronics Recycling Drive, collecting over 2,700 lbs of unwanted electronics, we wanted to give the greater Allendale Community a chance to safely dispose of their electronics once again! This spring we managed to collect another 1,648 pounds. That, combined with the 2,716 pounds we collected last fall, comes to a running total of 4,364 pounds of electronics that will properly be reused and recycled. Most importantly, all of this waste will stay out of our landfills!! The theme of the 2015 Spring drive appeared to be TV’s.  We received at least 11, with 27-32” being the popular size.
