E-Waste Collection, Paper Shredding Event Slated for May 7 in Culver City

Homeboy Recycling will provide Culver City with several convenient electronics recycling services, including hosting quarterly drive-through collection events for the public.

HomeBoy will continue the quarterly e-waste and paper shredding events on the first Saturday of each quarter from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. These events will be held at Syd Kronenthal Park, located at 3459 McManus, on the following dates: May 7 and August 6.

Chris Zwicke, CEO of Homeboy Electronics Recycling, stresses the importance of community partnerships. “We look at the ‘problem’ of e-waste as an opportunity to create quality jobs for people who really need them. Not only do we make sure to keep electronics out of landfills, where toxic materials can pollute our soil, water, and air, but we also refurbish computers and other electronics, increasing the supply of affordable IT equipment in our community. This partnership between Homeboy and Culver City makes a truly positive local impact.”

Homeboy Electronics Recycling is an R2 certified social enterprise offering nationwide service for the proper disposal and management of IT assets. Each year, the company refurbishes thousands of computers and divert millions of pounds of electronics away from the landfill while creating jobs for people facing systemic barriers to employment.

Homeboy Industries, for over 30 years, is the largest gang rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world.
