Two Easy Ways to Support Madera PTA!

Electronic Waste

Have electronic waste?  Just got a new laptop, GPS, cell phone?  What
should I do with the old one?

Bring them into the office.  There is a purple box on the floor
opposite of the counter.

Recycling Fundraiser (formerly EcoPhones) will pay us for your old
electronic equipment.  Depending on your model, we can get as much as
$300 for certain phones. Up to $300 per laptop/netbook.  This is all
free money for Madera for the junk you are trying to properly dispose
