The City of Somersworth is pleased to support “Trade Up to End Hunger” on Saturday, November 22 from 9 am to noon at the Somersworth Canal Street Mills.
“Trade Up to End Hunger” is an electronics recycling event where local business, TradePort, will be accepting a variety of quality consumer electronics to be refurbished and resold. Universal Recycling Technologies (URT) will be accepting items with low market value, which will be responsibly recycled free of charge. Items such as CRT Monitors, TVs, and other heavy electronics will not be accepted. Fifty percent of the profit will be given to the Somersworth chapter of “End 68 Hours of Hunger.”
In order to generate a much profit as possible for the Somersworth chapter of End 68 Hours of Hunger, participants are asked to bring in items such as iPhones 3GS and up, Blackberry’s, HTC phones, digital camera’s (8-megapixels and above), binoculars, Blu-Ray Drives, Samsung Galaxy phones and Tablets, headphones and other better quality electronics. A complete list of accepted trade-in items is available here.
A volunteer run nonprofit, End 68 Hours of Hunger’s mission is to provide food for local needy children who may otherwise go without over the 68 hours between the end of school on Friday and the beginning of school on Monday. School age children have access to free and reduced meals during the school week but those same children may not be getting adequate and nutritious meals over the weekend. “Trade Up to End Hunger” is being put on by TradePort with support from Universal Recycling Technologies (URT), Chinburg Properties and the City of Somersworth.
Founded in 2002, TradePort has built their business in Somersworth by creating new life for electronics that may otherwise contribute to a landfill. TradePort is an e-commerce leader for new, used, and refurbished brand-name consumer electronics at discount prices.
