If you got new electronic toys for Christmas and are looking to get rid of the old, an event Saturday is just the thing for you.

Enactus Windsor, a student-run organization at the Odette School of Business, is holding a collaborative e-waste collection event in conjunction with Unifor Local 200’s Computers for Kids program at Windsor Crossing Saturday from 9am to 3pm.

Computers for Kids recycles unwanted computers, keyboards, televisions, telephones and other electronic equipment into educational tools for community youth in need.

Event organizer Thuy Doan is encouraging everyone to donate their old or unused electronics. Doan says drop-off events provide an environmentally friendly way to dispose of your old electronics while helping to provide educational tools for local children in need of these valuable resources.

“The donated electronics will either be recycled in an environmentally friendly way, or refurbished and given to children in Windsor-Essex that are in need of them. Both Computers for Kids and Enactus Windsor are working together to ensure that no child falls behind in school because they do not have access to the appropriate resources,” says Doan.

Donated computers will have their software fully removed in order to protect donor privacy.
