TUSTIN, Calif., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of a statewide effort to celebrate America Recycles Day on November 15th, California public and private schools will offer a viable solution for communities to rid their homes of electronic waste in an environmentally safe and responsible manner. Hundreds of schools throughout the State of California will participate in a week-long Million Pound Challenge beginning November 12th thru November 20th, 2011. The schools have partnered with All Green Electronics Recycling to bring an e-waste recycling roundup to their campuses daily. Schools can apply to take part in the challenge by going to before the deadline of September 20, 2011. For more information, please contact Ruth Buske at (800) 780-0347.

All Green Electronics Recycling, one of the nation's leading E-waste solutions providers, has pledged to donate $50,000 or more of the proceeds to participating schools based on the volume collected during this challenge.

"New schools and districts are still being added to the list, with the goal of enlisting 250 schools across the state," explained All Green Electronics Recycling President Arman Sadeghi.

In 2011, the E-waste recycler partnered with more than 100 public and private schools throughout the state of California for its community E-waste collections, and donated a portion of the proceeds back to each partnering school.

All Green Electronics Recycling will partner with public and private schools K-12 in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Corona, Fresno, Bakersfield, San Jose, San Francisco, Sacramento and Stockton.

Among the items being accepted for donation that day will be computers, monitors, laptops, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, cell phones, mp3 players, ink toner cartridges, printers, microwaves, cables and wires, calculators and any small or portable electronics.

All items collected at the roundup will be responsibly processed in North America with a zero-landfill policy.
