Celebrating Earth Week: Caesars Windsor offers public drop off for E-Waste Collection, April 22 & 23

For immediate release: April 16, 2014

Windsor, ON – In honour of Earth Week, Caesars Windsor in cooperation with Recycling Makes Cents is offering a convenient, free E-Waste Collection public drop off site. The public is invited to drop off their unwanted electronics, big or small, in the gated parking lot located at 250 Windsor Ave., across from the Colosseum from 9 am – 7 pm on Tuesday, April 22 and 9 am to 3 pm on Wednesday, April 23. Vehicles can drive through, entering through the Chatham Street gate, just west of McDougall Ave. Walk-ups are also welcome.
Large bins, provided by Recycling Makes Cents, a local community and industrial recycling centre, will accommodate any size electronic device including amplifiers, cameras, cell phones, computers, monitors, speakers, scanners, printers, tuners, televisions and more. These electronics will be recycled and diverted from landfills.
According to recycleyourelectronics.ca, operated by Ontario Electronic Stewardship, it’s important to recycle your electronics because 90% of e-waste’s component parts can be refurbished and reused, containing some of the most valuable elements mined and refined today including copper.
Also this month, dozens of Caesars Windsor employees and their families are volunteering their time to earth-friendly events around the city including our annual Little River Clean Up on April 23 and Essex Region Conservation Authority’s annual Tree Planting on April 27.
Caesars Windsor is a proud participant in the Caesars Entertainment’s corporate wide commitment to environmental stewardship, CodeGreen. The property is dedicated to investing in sustainable practices to increase energy efficiency and water conservation, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote recycling and waste reduction. A few of Caesars Windsor’s efforts include:
Starting in 2011, 16,000 lighting fixtures were changed over to LED, saving over 5 million KW/hr., per year. Nearly 14,000 fluorescent lamps were recycled, diverting over 6,000 lbs. of hazardous waste from landfills.
Participants in the Clean the World Program, a recycling program that takes used hotel soap, sanitizes and recycles it to make new soap for use in hygiene programs in Third World countries. In 2013, Caesars Windsor collected enough soap to make 2,805 bars of new soap and 1,283 bottles of liquid soap.
Our four-diamond hotel is 4-Green Key certified from the world recognized Green Key Eco-Rating program. This certification is given to properties that are committed to protecting the environment by adopting environmentally conscious business practices.
