Recycling Event Tomorrow to Benefit Firefighters' Memorial Scholarship Fund

Maven Technologies of Rochester is hosting a computer and electronics recycling event at Monroe Community College, Parking Lot H, on April 13, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. to benefit the Lt. Michael J. Chiapperini and Tomasz M. Kaczowka Memorial Scholarship at MCC. The event is open to the public and designed to increase awareness of computer and electronics recycling as well as collect cash donations for the memorial scholarship.

The scholarship was established in January to honor Lt. Michael "Chip" Chiapperini, MCC Class of 1989, and Tomasz Marian Kaczowka, an MCC student, whose lives were lost on December 24, 2012, while responding to a house fire as volunteers with the West Webster Fire Department. Students who are training at MCC's Public Safety Training Facility and pursuing areas of interest related to fire protection careers are eligible for the scholarship. Cash donations will be accepted at the event to benefit the firefighters’ memorial scholarship fund.

To recycle at this event, participants need to load their vehicles with old and unwanted equipment and bring it to lot H on MCC's Brighton Campus. A list of acceptable and unacceptable material for recycling can be found at: <""> . Maven Technologies employees will unload residents' vehicles and transport all collected items to their secure processing facility in Rochester.

At Maven Technologies' recycling facility, all materials are tracked using Maven's unique data management system and highly-refined handling process. This process uses the most environmentally responsible recycling methods in each step: from taking inventory to sorting and segregating to the final staging process. Maven adheres to strict state and federal regulations as well as maintains a zero-landfill policy. For more information about Maven Technologies, please visit: <"">.
