Robotics club accepts e-waste for fundraiser

Members of the Wolfpack Robotics Club at West High School are collecting used printer cartridges, cellphones and other old electronics to raise money for club activities.

The club hopes to receive donations from local businesses, service groups and individuals.

Electronics can be dropped off at West High School’s Room H6 between 3 and 5 p.m. on school days. Members will also pick up donations within the Tracy and Mountain House areas.

All collected e-waste will be sent to FundingFactory, a Pennsylvania-based recycling company.
