FREE Electronic recycling collection in Amery

3/30/2015

March 30, 2015

In recognition of Earth Day, eight HealthPartners and Park Nicollet hospitals and clinics are partnering with Tech Dump, a Minnesota electronics recycling nonprofit, to collect unwanted electronics (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 electronics recycling event is another example of HealthPartners’ focused 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, ancient cell phones, random cords and more (larger appliance not accepted).  HealthPartners and Tech Dump are partnering to host eight free electronics recycling events across the metro during the last few weeks of 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 electronics – and feel good about supporting Earth Day and a healthier, cleaner environment. The event will be held at:

  • April 28, 12 to 3 p.m. at the northwest corner of the Amery Area Community Center parking lot (corner of Scholl Street and Harriman Avenue)

The hospital or clinic location’s Green Team is hosting the event and will have volunteers on hand to assist participants with their electronics recycling needs. Tech Dump will destroy all information and data at their facility in Golden Valley or St. Paul.  For a complete list of accepted electronic, and those not accepted, visit www.TechDump.org/HealthPartners. Tech Dump is a Minnesota and Hennepin County licensed electronics recycler.  For more information about our commitment to sustainability, visit healthpartners.com/sustainability.
