The eWaste recycle event at Intero Real Estate office in San Mateo was a huge success. All week long the people came to the office with old televisions, unused cell phones, computer monitors, keyboards and all types electronic stuff that no longer worked or was being used. The Intero Foundation partnered with EarthCare Recycling by offering an eWaste Collection Center at Intero Real Estate San Mateo the week of August 9, 2010.
After a week of collecting and accepting eWaste, EarthCare Recycling showed up with two trucks to collect the recyclables. EarthCare Recycling will donate 50% of the proceeds from all the recycled EWaste to the Intero Foundation. The Intero Foundation provides grants to local non profits that are dedicated to helping children in need and children in crisis. The Foundation has funded grants totaling more than $50,000 so far this year and over $1.5 million since its inception.
Thanks to the Intero agents, office staff and all those that took the time to bring unused electronic equipment to the office. While we don’t have the final figures this was truly a win - win for all.
