A press release from Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore:
Electronic Recycling Event a Success
By Linda Moore, Grafton TWP Supervisor
“I have saved this truckload of electronics in my basement for 25 years.
“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to dispose of it for free and without putting it in our landfills.”
This was the comment from one of the first participants who dropped off their waste.
About 30 Com 2 employees and volunteers worked steadily from 10 am to 2 pm to unload cars and trucks.
None of the participants waited in line.
As an added bonus, everyone received the Grafton Township Supervisor’s newsletter detailing township services and township calendar of events.
The total weight of the donated items was 48,278 lb.
There were 63 pallets filled with electronic waste.
EleConcerns about privacy protection were quickly allayed when residents were shown what a shredded hard drive looked like after Com 2 used their special machine to destroy them.

Volunteers from the Huntley Lions Club, Sun City Computer Club, Huntley Trinity Lutheran Church, Huntley Historical Society, Huntley High School Honor Society and the Grafton Township Board all worked together on a beautiful Saturday to serve the local community.
