Kaiser Permanente, Goodwill teaming up for Earth Day recycling event

Related Special Reports

Kaiser Permanente Southern California and Goodwill are teaming up for the seventh consecutive year to commemorate Earth Day with a regional e-waste, recycling and donation drive.

More than a dozen events will be hosted at Kaiser Permanente Southern California locations from Los Angeles to San Diego, beginning April 10 through April 25, to divert tons of electronics from landfills -- items that could otherwise leak contaminants into the soil, air and water if not disposed of properly.

The public, as well as Kaiser Permanente Southern California physicians and employees, are asked to donate outdated, unwanted, working and nonworking electronic equipment such as phones, television sets and computers, as well as gently used and new clothing, accessories, household goods, books, e-media and collectibles.

Goodwill will be standing by with 28-foot trailers to collect donations and oversee their safe and secure recycling or re-selling at Goodwill retail locations throughout Southern California.
