Samsung Canada is bringing the Solve for Tomorrow E-Recycling Challenge to Calgary; previous programs have been organized in Edmonton and Toronto. Samsung is SO excited to help Calgary's schools and local communities learn about e-waste recycling through school activities and a collection challenge!
What is e-waste? E-waste, is defined as all types of unwanted electronics and electronic equipment.
The program is built around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), and strives to educate Canadian youth on the importance of proper e-waste recycling. This program has seen more than 300,000 pounds of e-waste diverted from Canada's landfills to be safely and responsibly disposed of.
How do you get involved?
Share and talk to your children about the importance of keeping these items out of the landfills, then register your school HERE (or forward the link to your childs school), and finally send all your unwanted electronics you have at home with your child!
