Yearly E-Waste Recycling Drive

Every Year, GroundWork group co-hosts an E-Waste Recycling Drive to help our nonprofit partners responsibly dispose of old electronic equipment. RenTek has been our partner for many years, providing the Central Ohio community with cost effective ways to recycle and reuse electronics. RenTek donates $.08 per pound on all materials collected to GroundWork Group to continue our mission to provide IT solutions to the nonprofit community. Your electronic recycling also enables RenTek to provide job readiness opportunities to individuals with developmental disabilities and other employment barriers.

Pounds of electronics recycled in past years:

  • In 2017 – 4,700 pounds of electronics recycled
  • In 2018 – 5,500 pounds of electronics recycled
  • Help us reach our goal of 6,500 pounds recycled this year!
