Gilbert High School (GHS) students will be accepting used or obsolete computers and electronics from 8 a.m. to noon, on Saturday, April 21, in conjunction with Arizona StRUT Computer Recycle Day. StRUT, which stands for Students Recycling Used Technology, provides students with the opportunity for hands-on technology training.
During that morning, both the public and businesses are encouraged to bring computers, hard drives, monitors, printers and other computer equipment, as well as personal electronics such as stereo equipment, DVD, and VCR players, to the student parking lot at Gilbert High School, 1101 E. Elliot Road, in Gilbert. About 35 GHS StRUT students will evaluate and sort the equipment. Salvageable donations will be refurbished by StRUT students and given to non-profit organizations across the state.
The event supports Earth Day, which is on April 22, and provides a community service for E-Waste.
According to the AZStRUT website: “Our model program teaches students valuable technology skills; provides quality refurbished computers to schools and non-profits around the state; and benefits the environment by diverting old equipment from our landfills.” For more information, go to www.azstrut.org
