Stop by Boone County High School, 7056 Burlington Pike, in Florence. You’ll see us in the parking lot beside the tennis courts.
We’re also partnering with Best Way Disposal, Boone County Waste Management and Boone County Schools to provide a convenient drop-off location for electronics to be safely and securely disposed of at Boone County High School.
We’re working together for change. All proceeds will benefit the Rotary Club of Florence district grant initiatives.
Benches & Little Free Library
One of those grant initiatives is to recycle and purchase two benches and materials to make a Little Free Library at Boone County High School. Each bench requires 300 lbs of caps to be collected and costs $300 each. RISE Academy students will build and Boone County Public Library will supply books for the Little Free Library. You can make monetary donations on the club’s website here.
The goal is to raise $800 for these projects.
Items We’ll Collect at Electronics Recycling Day
Do you have some old computer equipment lying around your home or business?
Bring them by, and we’ll recycle them. Proceeds from the recycling day event will support the Rotary Club of Florence’s initiatives.
Items collected include:
- Phones (landlines or cellular)
- Flat monitors
- Loose hard drives
Please note: No old TVs, microwaves, or bulky monitors.
Truly a Collaborative Effort
“This is truly a collaborative project that benefits our community, the earth and especially our students” states Julia Pile, Rotary Club of Florence President-Elect Designee and Boone County Schools Board Member. “This is what makes living in Boone County and the Northern Kentucky region so special, when someone has an idea, you reach out and everyone is more than willing to jump in and be a part of the project and bring others along to help.”
“The idea for the event started when Mike Franxman of I.T. Supply Solutions visited the club to talk about the services their organization provides and their philosophy of giving back to the community. It was just a natural fit for our club to partner with them to provide an event where the community could recycle their electronics safely. To be able to tie the bottle caps recycling in with our district grant initiative just has taken this project to a whole new level” states Rotary Club President Duane Froelicher.
