Service Project

Comprenew 
(February 2, 2019, 8:30AM-Noon)
--Download and fill out this volunteer form for each person--

 

Rush Creek Council has an opportunity to serve the community by working with Comprenew. Comprenew reconditions and recycles electronic devices such as computers, televisions, phones and other devices. We will be helping them recycle unusable computers by disassembling them and removing the various components. Did you know that some components contain gold? Many others have copper, steel, lithium, tin, or silver. The parts will be removed and sorted so that the various materials can be reclaimed and reused. 

 

When is it? 

Saturday February 2, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 Noon. They will show us a short video and go over some safety procedures at the beginning. “Start” and “stop” times are not strictly enforced. If you can’t stay the whole time that is OK. You can stay as late as 4:00.

 

Where is it? 

Comprenew is located at: 629 Ionia Avenue SW Grand Rapids, MI 49503 

There are plenty of parking spaces in the warehouse parking lot right next door. 

 

Who can go? 

This activity is open to all cadet groups in Rush Creek. Any family members that would like to attend are welcome to join in the fun. Anyone who can turn a screwdriver or take something apart is more than qualified to participate.

 

What should we bring? 

You do not need to bring anything except a willingness to try something different. Tools and safety glasses will be provided. Also, we will have a snack together mid-morning. If you would like to take something to share you are more than welcome.

If able, please bring a filled out disclaimer form for each person. These will also be available at the event to fill out.
