FREE Computer and Cell Phone recycling collection on April 27


April 3, 2016

In recognition of Earth Day, eight HealthPartners and Park Nicollet hospitals and clinics are partnering with Tech Dump, a local electronics recycling nonprofit, to collect unwanted computers or cell phones (gently used, obsolete, or damaged).  Sustainability is an important part of the HealthPartners mission, which is to improve health and well-being in partnership with those we serve. By caring for the places where we live and work, we’re creating healthier and cleaner communities for us, our members, patients and future generations.
“The computer and cell phone recycling event is another example of HealthPartners’ comprehensive efforts on sustainability and community outreach.  We invite our staff and the community to participate in this event and support our recycling and ecofriendly efforts,” says Dana Slade, manager, Sustainability, HealthPartners.

Gather up your broken laptops, desktops, motherboards, ancient cell phones, random cords and more (appliances not accepted).  HealthPartners and Tech Dump are partnering to host eight free computer and cell phone recycling events across the metro during a few weeks in April. Regardless of where you work or live, from St. Louis Park to the St. Croix Valley, we’ve got a location where you can unload those old computers or cell phones – and feel good about supporting Earth Day and a healthier, cleaner environment.
