March 27, 2024

By Healthy NewsWorks reporters | Maurice Jones started an organization in Philadelphia that recycles computers and other electronics. It is called PAR-Recycle Works, and it aims to help keep the environment cleaner and to give people jobs, says an article in the spring 2023 issue of By Kids, For Kids by Healthy NewsWorks reporters. The group reuses electronic parts from some devices and safely disposes of computers and other electronic devices.

Mr. Jones offered these tips before recycling old electronics:

  • Make them look like new.
  • Erase your personal information.
  • Drop them off at a recycling center that handles electronics.
