The Number of Tablets Being Recycled Is At An All Time High

The Number of Tablets Being Recycled Is At An All Time High

Many recycling companies are reporting a drop in PC recycling and an increase in tablet recycling. Smartphones and tablets are continuing to lure people away from buying computers and to invest in a more portable device. These devices are now old enough where newer, faster versions are hitting the market and the first generation is now going to recycling. Some companies and municipalities are required to have a certain weight of electronics being recycled each year. Since these devices weigh significantly less than an average computer, the weights will be down again this year for these companies. However, that is not to say that there is less equipment being recycled. Many of these organizations are now undergoing a reevaluation of their system to accommodate for lighter electronics in the years to come.

An awards ceremony honoring the winners of these prestigious awards is scheduled to take place at the luncheon.

The William C. Habig Collaborative Achievement award was created in 2006 in honor of William C. Habig, who served MORPC for 39 years, 34 years as executive director. The William C. Habig Collaborative Achievement award is annually presented to an individual or individuals who have achieved an effective effort or innovative collaborative in Central Ohio. The honoree (s) will have demonstrated success in developing a specific initiative or entity that supports broad inclusion and encourages diverse perspectives. The initiative or entity delivers tangible results addressing key challenges facing the region. The 2015 Nominees include:

 I270/US33 Interchange Project Partnership - A broad-based, multi-year coalition of public and private Central Ohio partners has propelled the I270/US33 Interchange's reconstruction start date to early 2015, at least 10 years ahead of schedule. The diverse collaboration of business organizations including the Union County Economic Development, the Columbus Chamber, Columbus 2020 and the Columbus Partnership; over 400 firms and individuals; ODOT; MORPC and the City of Dublin committed to making this project the region's top priority.

The project results allow our communities to better understand the impact of future land use policies on key issues such as transportation, land consumption, government budgets, environmental and air quality.

Marion County's first TV drop-off a success

Marion County's first TV drop-off a success

MARION - Organizers of the first Marion County recycling collection to allow televisions didn't know what to expect before Saturday.

They quickly discovered it would be a success when they saw a line of vehicles waiting an hour before they opened in front of Buffalo Wild Wings and didn't see the line slow down throughout the afternoon.

Marion County Recycling and Litter Prevention partnered with the city and Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus to collect all types of electronics including computers and televisions. MCRLP Director Angie Carbetta said it was the first time a collection in the county accepted televisions, widely not accepted because they are a hazard and expensive to process.

Collection event in Marion will take TVs; electronics from schools and businesses! Saturday June 11th

MARION - An electronics drop off Saturday will be the first opportunity for a television collection in the county and is open to businesses and schools instead of just residents.
Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus is collecting all types of electronics, free for every device except televisions.
Because of the costs of processing, there is a $15 recycling fee for TVs.
Mayor Scott Schertzer connected with the Marion County Recycling and Litter Prevention to get the collection organized, he said.
"Recycling is not mandatory, but generally people think it's a good thing to do," he said.
He was looking to get more people to participate in curbside recycling, and the idea blossomed out of that with investigation into the city's recycling program, Schertzer said.
Most drop offs where electronics are accepted are restricted to residential services. This one will be open to all kinds of businesses and schools.
"It's a good thing for everybody when we recycle," he said.
