We certainly appreciate your help.
This is a beautiful place to live, we all want to keep it that way.
The CCRI is committed to providing environmentally and socially conscious recycling services for your unwanted electronics. We are using Comprenew, a Grand Rapids, Michigan, company to recycle the electronic materials. Comprenew has been in business for 20 years and operates a Michigan DEQ inspected and nationally certified facility. By working with Goodwill and Comprenew we are helping to create jobs for UP families. The company has a” no landfill” policy that is strictly enforced.
