(Hudson, WI) – In recognition of Earth Day, eight HealthPartners and Park Nicollet hospitals and clinics are partnering with Tech Dump, a Minnesota electronics recycling nonprofit, to collect unwanted computers and cell phones (gently used, obsolete, or damaged). Sustainability is an important part of the HealthPartners mission, which is to improve health and well-being in partnership with those we serve. By caring for the places where we live and work, we’re creating healthier and cleaner communities for us, our members, patients and future generations.
The Tech Dump recycling event in Hudson is planned for Friday, April 22, from 8 a.m. to noon at Hudson Hospital & Clinic, 405 Stageline Road, Emergency Center parking area.
“The computer and cell phone recycling event is another example of HealthPartners’ focused efforts on sustainability and community outreach. We invite our staff and the community to participate in this event and support our recycling and ecofriendly efforts,” says Dana Slade, manager, Sustainability, HealthPartners.
Gather up your broken laptops, desktops, motherboards, ancient cell phones, random cords and more (appliance not accepted). HealthPartners and Tech Dump are partnering to host eight free electronics recycling events across the metro during the last few weeks of April. Regardless of where you work or live, from St. Louis Park to the St. Croix Valley, we’ve got a location where you can unload those old electronics – and feel good about supporting Earth Day and a healthier, cleaner environment.
The hospital or clinic location’s Green Team is hosting the event and will have volunteers on hand to assist participants with their computer or cell phone recycling needs. Tech Dump will destroy all information and data at their facility in Golden Valley or St. Paul prior to the recycling or reselling the equipment that will be collected.
