The members of the Realtor Association of Southwestern Illinois, in conjunction with PCs for People and The File Room, are having a free, community recycling event on Wednesday, May 18.
PCs for People will handle the electronics recycling, while The File Room will take care of shredding.
The event will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. at 1124 Hartman Lane, Shiloh, in the parking lot.
Founded in 1998, PCs for People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization centered around getting low-cost computers and affordable broadband internet into the homes of low-income individuals. The organization has provided 180,000 people with home computers, connected 165,000 people to low-cost internet, and recycled over 8 million of pounds of electronics.
PCs for People has a regional operation in Belleville.
At last year’s event, RASI collected 11 full-size boxes of electronics. “I know we will be able to help a lot of people and keep the electronics out of the garbage,” said Raffi Mikaelian, PCs for People account manager.
