In March, Holladay Properties and Yorktown 50 hosted the event in conjunction with Ampajen Solutions and Goodwill of Greater Washington. Amanda Timmons of Ampajen Solutions of Colorado is coordinating the LEED certification for Yorktown 50 and was instrumental in bringing together Holladay Properties and Goodwill of Greater Washington for the re-cycling event. The event enabled Yorktown practices and employees to recycle electronic equipment ranging from computers, monitors, laptops to gaming consoles. This event was well received.
The Goodwill provides certified data destruction and will either resell usable equipment or Dell Computers will re-cycle the components. This project works to keep toxic waste out of the landfills.
