Bloomberg is Serious About E-Waste
It took some time, but we’ve tallied the numbers from Bloomberg’s May e-waste drive. Bloomberg employees in New York, Princeton and Washington, D.C. brought in old TVs, monitors, laptops, printers, phones, gaming devices and more to be properly disposed of by our e-waste recycling partners.
And the number is…2,800 pounds. That’s equivalent to 11 baby elephants!
Bloomberg is serious about making sure our electronic waste is disposed of in a matter that does not enter the waste stream. All e-waste is scrapped, recycled, and discarded to the highest standards. (Bloomberg is an e-Steward Enterprise, publicly pledging to give preferential treatment to e-Stewards Recyclers for the company’s electronics disposal.) To encourage responsible electronic recycling with our employees, Bloomberg hosts waste drives twice a year in five locations around the world.
