• HHS Electronics and Paint Recycling Day

    Harrison High School Marching Band will be holding an Electronics and Paint Recycle Day on Saturday, November 17th, 9:00am-5:00pm in the Upper Parking Lot of Harrison High School.

    Please bring items to be recycled such as computers, power tools, heavy metals, lawnmowers, cell phones, telephone chargers, power cables, fax machines, TVs, monitors, etc. We are partnering with Federal Recyclers, an EPA registered company, who will be on-site with their trucks to collect the recyclables.

    There is a $10.00 requested donation per car load. 100% of the donation goes to the HHS Bands program. There is a $20.00 processing fee for 1 TV/monitor and $15.00 each one after. A portion of this amount goes to HHS Bands as well.

    We now accept paint cans!! A processing fee of $4 per quart or gallon or $10 per 5 gallon bucket is requested, with a portion of this fee going to the band. (Paint cans do not need to be empty or have kitty litter in them)

    ***All donations/processing fees are tax deductible. You will be given a receipt for your donation***

    We are now offering large item pick-ups for an additional donation fee. Contact us at electronicsrecycling@harrisonbands.org to get details or schedule a pick-up.
