Urban Regional Extension Agent Phillip Carter, along with other Extension staff, is working to decrease the amount of e-waste fated for our landfills. On Saturday, October 12, 2013, Carter partnered with the Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center’s Assured Data Destruction to host Dothan, Alabama’s second Electronic Waste Recycling Drive. The event was held on the grounds near the Houston County Farm Center. Citizens were allowed to drop off unwanted and broken electronics for recycling and disposal, which included monitors, laptops, cell phones, and other electronic devices.
Along with annual e-cycling campaigns, the AAMU/ACES E-waste Institute offers workshops and a small electronics recycling program in partnership with Funding Factory, an organization that helps non-profit organizations to raise funds through recycling efforts.
