Saturday, June 7: Compuer Recycling Day in Worcester

The New England Surge is excited to co-sponsor a Computer Recycling Day with Bay State Savings Bank this Saturday, June 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This event will take place at Bay State Savings Bank’s newest branch location at 2 Eastern Ave (off of I-290, Exit 16)., Worcester.
Bring used electronics from your home and/or office, including computers, monitors, printers, televisions, and other equipment that may be stashed away in a garage or closet, that needs to be recycled.
For $10--$15 per item, Computer Recycling USA will accept equipment and provide a “Certificate of Recycling” which guarantees complete hard drive erasure to prevent identity theft and satisfies all government environmental compliance regulations, including HIPPAA.
In addition, $5 of every item will be donated to Art beCAUSE, a local non-profit foundation who is committed to funding research dedicated to eradicating environmental causes of breast cancer.
For every item recycled, the New England Surge will provide ONE FREE TICKET to their last regular season game that is taking place that evening at 7:30 PM at the DCU Center in Worcester.
Roy Lucas, Jr., Founder and President of the Surge states, “We are very excited to support Art beCAUSE in their work towards breast cancer research. This is a viable cause and a terrible disease that affects 1 in 7 women; it is a cause that is very personal to the New England Surge.” Lucas continues, “One of our key objectives is to give back and be a vital part of our community—what better way to do that, than to recycle items and have proceeds go to breast cancer research, with one of our key corporate sponsors!”
BayState Savings Bank alone has over 350 items they will be recycling, contributing over $ 1,750 to this cause.
"We are thrilled to be able to partner with the New England Surge," said Diane M. Giampa, Vice President - Human Resources and Marketing at Bay State Savings Bank. "Like the Surge, Bay State Savings Bank is committed to giving back to the communities that we serve, and to being a responsible corporate citizen. This is a great event, and we hope to raise a lot of money and awareness for breast cancer research. It is great working with other likeminded organizations as the Surge, for such a worthwhile cause."
