ROCHESTER, NY - Sunnking, Inc., in partnership with Camp Good Days and Special Times, has created a program entitled "E-Scrap 4 Camp" which will facilitate recycling old electronics from participating locations to generate funds for Camp Good Days and Special Times. 2013 marks the third year for the program however it is the first time that the fundraising efforts will be expanded to allow participation from Rochester area businesses and organizations. Since its inception in 2011, E-Scrap 4 Camp has recycled 569,562 pounds of electronics and raised $18,000.

For the month of April 2013, Sunnking will provide free electronics recycling supplies and pick-ups at participating schools, businesses, non-profits and other organizations in the Buffalo and Rochester area. Organizations are encouraged to collect old and unwanted electronics from employees, friends and family. Sunnking will donate money to Camp Good Days for every pound of electronics recycled.

"We are excited to be expanding this unique fundraising event to the Greater Rochester area," says Gary Mervis, Chairman & Founder of Camp Good Days. "This program has had great success in the Buffalo area, and we anticipate similar support and success here locally," Mervis added. "All of the programs and services we provide, for so many children and families dealing with cancer, are offered free of charge for the participants. We are only able to continue this because of the generous support from so many individuals and organizations, like Sunnking, Inc. and the success of special fundraising events and activities, like E-Scrap 4 Camp."

"It's amazing to see how the program has grown in such a short amount of time" says Sunnking's Marketing & Programs Manager, Zachary Hussion. "With the expansion into the Rochester area we are expecting to more than double the volume of electronics recycled compared to the first year of the program. It's a good feeling for everyone involved. Saving the environment and raising funds for a good cause is a win-win in my book."


How It Works:

Each participating location will have the opportunity to collect electronics from employees, friends and family for 1 week during the month of April. Packaging supplies will be provided by Sunnking at no cost.

Electronics will be picked up from each location and recycled at no cost. Sunnking will track and record the net weight of electronics recycled from each participating location and will provide a Certificate of Recycling & Destruction. At the end of the program Sunnking will donate money to Camp Good Days for every pound of electronics recycled. The participating location with the highest volume of materials collected will win $500 worth of refurbished computer equipment from Sunnking.
