TROY (WWJ) – If you have some old electronics lying around that you want to get rid of, listen up.

The E-Clutter for Kids Drive to benefit Beaumont Children’s Hospital’s First Words Society will be held on Saturday, April 21, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. in Troy.

E-Clutter for Kids is an electronics recycling fundraiser that allows you to donate electronic waste that will later be re-purposed or recycled. Each donation will get a tax deduction receipt.

E-Clutter benefits the Beaumont Children’s Hospital’s First Words Society, a nonprofit organization providing treatment for underserved children with speech and language disorders and affiliate of The Children’s Miracle Network.

Linda Orlans, CEO of eTitle which is sponsoring the recycling event, said the event is a great opportunity to get rid of used electronics while protecting the environment and supporting the needs of local children.

The first E-Clutter for Kids drive was held in 2011 and raised more than $11,000 for the First Words Society. Volunteers at drop-off locations across Metro Detroit filled 10 semi trucks, six dumpsters and helped the environment by recycling more than 100,000 pounds of potentially toxic waste material that would have ended up in landfills.

Statewide Recycling and Recovery will once again dispose of the electronic waste.

Between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, citizens can drop off their electronics for recycling at eTitle headquarters, located at  1650 West Big Beaver Road in Troy.
