Jefferson College to Host E-Cycling Collection Event October 15-16

Jefferson College and Adonis Recycling will co-host a community-wide electronics recycling event on Wednesday and Thursday, October 15-16.

The free collection event is being organized by the college’s Environment and Safety Committee and the Phi Theta Kappa student honor society chapter in an effort to identify simple, affordable ways to make the campus and the surrounding region more environmentally friendly. Specifically, the recycling days are designed to protect the environment by providing the opportunity to dispose of unwanted electronics responsibly.

Items will be recycled free of charge including cell phones, computers, printers, VCRs, DVD players, copiers, scanners, LCD and plasma displays, small appliances, yard equipment, and bathroom items. As a general guideline, any item that has a cord can be brought for recycling.

Items can be dropped off between 9 a.m.- 6 p.m. each day on the Hillsboro campus red parking lot, located between the Field House and the Child Development Center. Anyone may participate.

According to information from the Consumer Electronics Association listed on the Adonis Recycling website, Americans own approximately 24 electronic products per household. With a constant supply of newer, faster electronic products on the market, older models are continually replaced. As a result, electronics have become one of the fastest growing waste streams. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimated that of the 2.25 million tons of televisions, cell phones and computer products that were disposed in 2007, approximately 80 percent ended up in landfills. All the gold, copper, silver, leaded glass and other recyclable materials used in those products was buried instead of being recovered and reused.

E-scrap includes more than just televisions, cell phones and computer products. The terms also includes DVD players, VCRs, video cameras, digital cameras, gaming consoles, stereos, answering machines, photocopiers/scanners and printers. E-scrap has become an issue of national importance, not only because of the amount produced, but also because of the various toxic materials and heavy metals located inside these items. Electronics can contain lead, arsenic, chromium, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, nickel, zinc, copper, silver, gold, and brominates flame retardants. When disposed of carelessly, the toxic materials inside the electronics can be harmful to both people and the environment. The toxic materials can seep out and contaminate our soil, water and air if that product gets crushed or improperly incinerated.

For more information about the free e-cycling collection days at Jefferson College, contact Matt Keeney at (636) 481-3355 or (636) 797-3000, extension 3355 (TDD) 789-5772.

Kelly S. Cowan Appointed to Jefferson County Library Board of Trustees
Kelly S. Cowan was sworn in as a member of the Jefferson County Library Board of Trustees at the Library Board meeting August 26.  Cowan was appointed to a three year term, expiring June 30, 2018, by County Executive Ken Waller, with the approval of the County Council.  Library trustees are unpaid citizen representatives who have fiscal, planning and policy oversight of  library operations under state law.
“Kelly is a very active patron and volunteer at our Arnold Branch Library,” said JCL director Pam Klipsch. “She has worked in marketing and fundraising, and brings a fresh perspective and a great skill set to our Board of Trustees.”
“I’ve always loved libraries,” Cowan said. “My husband and I moved to Jefferson County because we wanted enough land for a big garden and for our dogs --- but we said it would have to be a place where we would have a library. I can’t imagine living anywhere without a library!”
Cowan and her husband, Joseph, live in Imperial. She will represent the Fox-Windsor Subdistrict on the JCL kelly cowanBoard of Trustees.

            Other County Library Trustees are Phil Amato of Arnold; Sharon K. Reineri of Cedar Hill; and Retta Susan Tuggle of Eureka. Klipsch said the Board still has one vacancy, and is looking for someone from the Windsor area to fill that seat.
“We’re looking for someone who uses the library and understands the importance of the library as a positive force in the life of the community,” Klipsch said; “a resident of the County Library District with a strong business or volunteer background.” The JCL Board of Trustees meets regularly at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month and the location rotates among the three branch libraries in Arnold, Barnhart and High Ridge. Anyone who is interested in requesting an appointment to the JCL Board of Trustees can contact Klipsch at (636) 677-8689 or email pklipsch@jeffcolib.org.
