Steve Beck has been holding these events since 2002, they have now raised $514,000 for non-profit, educational and community service organizations. Steve’s events have become regular events at many local towns and are usually held twice per year. Agencies that have benefited include Thayer Public Library ($21,000), Dedham HS Music Program ($15,000), Norwell Science Center ($4,000), Martha’s Vineyard Community Service center ($34,000) and a host of high school music, fine arts and girls athletic programs.
It’s So Easy
Local residents can simply put their unwanted electronics into their vehicle and drive to the Marshfield Middle School, where workers will remove the items from their car. Hard drives are destroyed, some items are crushed and sold as construction filler and televisions and monitors are reburbished for resale all over the world. Here’s the listing of what they’ll take at this recycling event:
