PROP Honors St. Hubert's High School With Waste Watcher's Award

St. Hubert's Catholic High School for Girls was selected by the Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania to receive their Waste Watchers Award in recognition of the school's recycling efforts during 2013.

The Award is presented each year to organizations whose programs demonstrate outstanding achievements in recycling, public education, special event recycling, special collections, recycling innovations, and waste reduction.

The award will be presented at the 24th Annual Recycling and Organics Conference, July 23-25, in Washington, Pa.

PROP acknowledges St. Hubert's environmental efforts in conducting successful electronic recycling events with eForce Compliance, which led to 57,000 pounds of e-waste being collected and diverted from landfills.

These e-waste collection events provide local residents with a convenient opportunity to effectively recycle obsolete and unwanted electronics. Students in turn, receive a first-hand education on the importance of proper recycling and the environmental impact of landfill diversion.

The students and faculty at St. Hubert's conducted third e-waste recycling event in May of this year, resulting in an additional 14,000 pounds of e-waste being collected for recycling.

Established in 1941, St. Hubert's Catholic High School for Girls is committed to fostering responsible citizenship and social awareness among its students.

eForce Compliance, a dual certified electronic recycling company with a 100,000 square foot operation in Philadelphia, provides an extensive network of special collection events in the metro-Philadelphia area to help residents responsibly recycle electronics.

eForce hosts over 60 localized collection events in partnership with municipalities, non-profit groups and civic associations in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs throughout the year.

As the first R2 and e-Stewards certified electronic recycler, eForce has been active in outreach programs to educate the public about the necessity of responsible recycling and has partnered with the EPA to become the first Sustainability Partnership Program Member in the region.
