Stevens Point, WI (October 25, 2016) –Boys & Girls Club of Portage County has been selected as a 2016 Cellcom Green Gift recipient. The nonprofit received a $1300 Green Gift from Cellcom to support its Kid Power electronics recycling program.

Kid Power educates about the negative effects of throwing electronics in the garbage and the benefits of recycling. The program will invite members to bring in unwanted electronics from their homes to be recycled. Participants will keep a record of all the items collected, research how and where they can be recycled in our community, and make at least one field trip to a recycling collection site to observe what it looks like and learn what happens to the items next.

“Over the course of their lifetime today’s youth will purchase and dispose of hundreds of electronic devices. An estimated 40 million tons of electronic waste is disposed of each year and only about 12% of e-waste is recycled. This not only harms the environment, but is a huge missed opportunity for making wiser use of precious resources,” said Kevin Quevillon, executive director. “With help from the Cellcom Green Gift, the Kid Power program will increase awareness of the e-waste problem and empower them to take charge and recycle their own items, potentially pre-empting thousands of electronics from being thrown in the garbage.”
