FREE Public E-Waste Drop off April 14 - 15Book A Room
For immediate release: April 13, 2015 Windsor, ON – Caesars Windsor, as part of their CodeGreen / Earth month, will be offering their second FREE public e-waste drop off from 8 am to 6 pm on Tuesday, April 14 and Wednesday, April 15. A bin, provided by Recycling Makes Cents, a local recycling depot, will be available for participants to drop off unused and unwanted electronics, big or small, such as televisions, small appliances, cell phones, radios, cameras, amplifiers, printers, scanners as well as used tires. Vehicles can drive through, entering through the Chatham St. gate, just west of McDougall Ave. Walk-ups are also welcome.
Kelly Laforest, Caesars Windsor’s Health, Safety and Environment Specialist said, “Diverting e-waste from landfills and disposing of it properly is extremely important for environmental stability. Heavy metals and harmful chemicals from circuitry boards can seep into the ground possibly contaminating water sources and healthy soil.”
Following this event, Caesars Windsor employees will be spreading their green efforts throughout the community, volunteering with local non-profit organizations on Wednesday April 22 to clean the Little River area, plant trees with the Essex Region Conservation Authority on Sunday, April 26 and join in on the Glengarry-Marentette neighbourhood spring clean-up on Saturday, May 2.
Did You Know
Throughout the year, Caesars Windsor continues to make reducing its carbon footprint a priority in its everyday business practices including reducing waste and energy consumption, recycling and more. Recently, the property’s award-winning Colosseum donated 26 Cyclorama theatre lights no longer used in their theatre to the University of Windsor’s dramatic arts program saving the school over $26,000 if they were to buy them on their own. They will use these lights, which otherwise would have gone into waste disposal, to provide dramatic lighting for the University’s theatre productions. This practice of reusing and donating gently used items like furniture, televisions and linens to local non-profit organizations has been a common practice throughout the property’s history as a way to reuse items that might not be needed due to renovations or upgrading but are in perfect working condition and can be of great use to those in need.
