SAS employees at their world headquarters in Cary, North Carolina are pitching in today and tomorrow to rummage, gather and cart in their old or broken electronics and small appliances to the semi-annual E-waste collection event this week.

“These events that we help our customers organize, are doing the right thing for the environment,” says GEEP Durham General Manager David Turner, “and really, by de-cluttering people’s homes and keeping these items out of landfills – they are a total win-win!”

People showed up with items like televisions, computers, printers, VCRs, toys, and some items that many had forgotten about in an attic or garage.

SAS takes corporate responsibility and recycling very seriously. 70 of their 5,308 employees in Cary are designated as “Eco-Advocates” and support initiatives such as the recycling event at their beautiful campus.

GEEP will ensure that all the items collected are securely and responsibly recycled at their facility just 12 miles away in Durham, North Carolina.
