Orlando Residents Recycle 23,741 Lbs. of Electronics at 7th Annual A1 Assets/Keep Orlando Beautiful Event


LONGWOOD, Florida (March 9, 2017) – On Saturday, February 25th, A1 Assets, American Textile Recycling Services, and Keep Orlando Beautiful had partnered up once again to host their annual electronic and textile recycling drive at the Orlando Festival Park. At this event, residents of the greater Orlando area dropped off 23,741 pounds of electronic recyclables, which is nearly 10,000 more compared to last year’s event. Additionally, the amount of textiles collected has doubled, with 1,378 pounds collected compared to 676 in 2016.

“It was a great day Saturday,” said Jody Buyas, Keep Orlando Beautiful Coordinator. “We counted 390 cars and it was a nonstop steady stream the entire time.”

“We are incredibly excited about the higher amount of participation from the Orlando community at our most recent recycling event,” said David Leavitt, President and CEO of A1 Assets. “This great turnout is a reflection of the increased awareness of the negative effects that electronic waste has on our environment, and the increased desire of our residents to recycle their devices responsibly and help preserve Florida’s natural beauty.”

This is the seventh year in a row that A1 Assets has partnered with Keep Orlando Beautiful to host a collection drive, and once again A1 Assets sponsored a raffle contest for all attendees who dropped off recyclables. Bill Massey was the winner of an 10.1″ Neutab Android Tablet, provided by A1 Assets subsidiary Refresh Computers.
