Two Brothers Scrap Metal donated the use of a container for Mineola Middle School’s eWaste Drive, which was held on October 28. The drive brought in 6,220 pounds of electronic waste. Residents dropped off unwanted and unused computers, hard drives, printers, flatscreen TVs, chargers which were collected by students from the school’s National Honor Society.

The purpose of the drive was to help the environment by disposing of electronics that are either no longer being used or do not work anymore; recycling electronic waste keeps it from winding up in landfills.

Two Brothers has participated in the eWaste Drive for the past five years. During that time, the company has hauled away 44,260 pounds — more than 22 tons — of electronic waste. The staff at Mineola Middle School thanked Two Brothers for its support.
