Thank you to our 2023 event Sponsors:
City of Sundance and Town of Hulett
Gold Level: Powder River Energy, Sundance State Bank, ONEOK
Silver Level: Pinnacle Bank, Neiman Enterprises
At the event, items are weighed, categorized, and loaded onto a flatbed trailer with the help of Protech Computing and local volunteers. Protech handles the hauling of the materials to Metech Recycling in Denver, Colorado. The electronics are dismantled and repurposed and the hazardous waste is safely disposed. Metech was chosen because they maintain E-2 certifications and utilize processes to ensure that sensitive information is secure and cannot be retrieved.
On September 9, 2023, the CCNRD held two electronic recycling events in Hulett and Sundance collecting over 7,500 pounds of electronic waste. These events prevent unwanted electronics from entering the landfill in Crook County or from being shipped to other countries. The CCNRD takes great pride in providing this service with the financial assistance of the Crook County Commissioners, City of Sundance, and Town of Hulett; sponsorships from Sundance State Bank, Powder River Energy, ONEOK, Neiman Enterprises, Pinnacle Bank and Blakeman Propane were received as well to help offset the rising costs in recycling.
These events have taken place annually since 2016 with an average collection of nearly 8,600 pounds of waste per year and a total of over 69,200 pounds of electronic waste recycled!
