One Easy Step To Clean Up Your Office - Or Is It Easy?

One Easy Step To Clean Up Your Office - Or Is It Easy?

Victoria Carter, CItyhop’s CEO was in the Hawkes Bay last weekend and read in their local paper that there was a national E Day coming up. Great she thought, time for a clean up.

What’s E Day you ask?

Well it is where you recycle your computer stuff! Cityhop  and its sister company JUCY have some old hardware that we want to recycle. We even thought we would get the 40 or so people who work here to get involved too.

We jumped on sustainability to find out more and read about E day.

You can get rid of the following:

    * monitors, networking equipment ( eg modems, routers, hubs ), scanners
    * keyboards, mice, speakers
    * laptops
    * printers
    * game consoles
    * toner and ink jet cartridges
    * mobile phones

Okay, great so next step - we go to find out where is the closest place for us to have a big home and office clean up.  Big disappointment, only two sites in a place as big as Auckland - wait for it, Glen Innes and North Shore.

And it is only on a Saturday. Wouldn’t you think local councils would get behind this? Or even computer places so one could easily get involved. That’s half the battle when trying to get people into being more sustainable. Make it easy!
