STORAGE SOLUTIONS BECOMES a GREENspot

Stores are now free e-waste drop-off and recycling collection locations.

LOS ANGELES, California (March 17, 2010) – Storage Solutions has joined the GREENspot DROPoff network of free and convenient e-waste recycling DROPoff locations. Now there are more convenient places where people can drop off e-waste for proper recycling in California.

"We are so excited to be part of the GREENspot DROPoff network. Going GREEN has been a strong initiative for Storage Solutions and we are proud to be able to offer the public our self storage facilities as free places to recycle their e-waste,” said Jae Ho, Operations Manager.

GREENspot DROPoff's unique approach to e-waste recycling not only benefits the environment, but also the local communities that it services. With the goal to minimize the amount of e-waste that is disposed of improperly, GREENspot DROPoff has created a myriad of programs to tailor fit the different e-waste needs of the community.

  1. DROPoff locations – GREENspot DROPoff has a network of free and convenient DROPoff locations throughout the State of California where people can walk in and DROPoff their e-waste at their convenience. Storage Solutions' self-storage facilities are some of the places people can dispose of their e-waste for free.
  2. PICKup program – For a nominal fee, GREENspot DROPoff will arrange to PICKup e-waste at local businesses and office buildings.
  3. GREEN2 Fundraising– GREENspot DROPoff partners with schools to educate the community about the importance of e-waste, and donates $1 to local schools for every eligible piece of e-waste recycled at a DROPoff location.
