City of Cedar Hill and Cedar Hill School District Celebrate Earth Day with Program to Eliminate E-Waste

24.04.2019

April 23, 2019 – Dallas, Texas – Re-Teck, a member of the Li Tong Group, announced that the City of Cedar Hill and Cedar Hill Independent School District (CHISD) launched Recycle for a Cause in celebration of Earth Day. They recently partnered with Re-Teck to implement the recycling program which strives to educate and prevent harmful e-waste from entering our landfills. According to the EPA, e-waste is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America representing 70% of the overall toxic waste. E-waste consists of electronic products and the components within them. Recycle for a Cause places recycling bins within local schools, businesses or organizations to collect used electronics including cell phones, tablets, laptops, desktops and gaming systems and thereby preventing this harmful e-waste from being sent to the city dump. This recycling program takes potentially harmful waste, recycles and repurposes it for materials recovery. Click here for photos

“The City is proud to collaborate with CHISD, Re-Teck and Recycle for a Cause to provide residents new and convenient avenues to recycle everyday electronics.  Our community has consistently taken the lead in beautification and environmental sustainability through similar programs such as Environmental Collection Days, Adopt Cedar Hill and Bitter for Litter.  I invite our community to again show their distinctive Cedar Hill character and help keep Cedar Hill beautiful through this new electronic recycling program,” shared Duy Vu, Cedar Hill Environmental Manager, Public Works.

“Cedar Hill ISD and the City of Cedar Hill have a long history of partnering together for great causes. Our newest partnership with Re-Teck, aligns with both organization’s visions of providing innovative opportunities in a safe and clean environment. The Recycle for a Cause program gives CHISD staff, scholars and their families a convenient way to dispose of harmful electronic waste, while benefitting education and assisting veterans through Rebuilding Our Heroes. Educating our scholars about the importance of e-waste recycling prepares them for a global marketplace and helps keep Cedar Hill beautiful,” commented Neil Bolton, Executive Director of Technology for Cedar Hill ISD.

“We are excited to work with the City of Cedar Hill and Cedar Hill ISD celebrating Earth Day by reducing e-waste through Recycle for a Cause while raising funds for the district’s students and Rebuilding Our Heroes, a veteran 501c organization,” stated Darren Ferrar, Manager of Business Development for Re-Teck. “Texas schools are taking the lead by educating their students and communities about safe ways to dispose of e-waste. Re-Teck is currently working with community leaders and schools in several cities to implement Recycle for a Cause.”

Adam Davidson, President and Co-Founder of Rebuilding Our Heroes (ROH), commented, “On behalf of the ROH team, I’d like to thank the City of Cedar Hill and the Cedar Hill ISD for supporting our veterans and the Recycle for a Cause movement led by Re-Teck.”
