Total Electronic Waste collected to date: 8326.7 LBS
We are lucky in Hoonah that the City tries to sort our e-waste from the trash. However, there can be problems here in Hoonah if we store the waste in piles left outside and inside storage containers. when the weather kicks up it tends to release the harsh metals and chemicals into our environment and can cause health issues in our community and to our environment. Recently this year we started taking a stand and beginning the recycling process (called a backhaul) to help make our environment healthier and safer.
