Electronic Waste Properly Disposed of
Through RC&D Project
Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation &
Development (RC&D) Council sponsored five
electronic waste recycling events recently
around the region. Working with
Recycletronics of Sioux City, a company who
employs disabled veterans, they collected
12,824 pounds of obsolete or outdated
computers, TVs, microwaves, speakers,
printers, projection units, and more.
Ninety-six households or businesses were
served through this project.
There were no grant funds
used to carry out this recycling program.
It was a user-supported effort along with
in-kind contributions of volunteer labor
from the RC&D Council and their partners.
In Pierce, the Pierce Telephone Company
hosted the event and did all of their own
advertising. In Niobrara, former RC&D board
member and community volunteer Kim Swanson
worked with the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska.
Jane Armstrong, a current RC&D board member,
took care of the project in Ponca. The
Loess Hills RC&D and the Northeast Nebraska
Telephone Company assisted Jane in the event
The RC&D Board of Directors
give their time, talent, and treasure to
this organization and the citizens of
northeast Nebraska in an effort to make
things better for the region. New project
ideas are encouraged, with grant writing
assistance and more willingly provided.
Participation by the public in all RC&D
activities is welcome and encouraged.
