Helena Industries is proud to announce Opportunity Bank of Montana is the first premiere monthly sponsor of our Big Sky E-Recycling Program.

 

Big Sky E-Recycling helps keep electronic waste out of our landfill by creating employment and training opportunities in our community.

 

Big Sky E-Recycling depends on the generous support of local partners like Opportunity Bank of Montana to sustain and grow this important community service.

Did you know e-waste is one of the fastest growing segments of municipal waste?

Take a moment to think about how often your family or business replaces electronic devices from cell phones to televisions and printers?

It adds up.

According to CyclePoint™, the average American produces around 15lbs. of e-waste every year. Plus, some electronic items include hazardous materials. These are just a few of the reasons that it is important to divert e-waste from our landfills.

Big Sky E-Recycling exists to ensure it’s done locally, done right, and convenient for you!

One of the best parts? The program provides meaningful vocational and rehabilitative opportunities to empower people with disabilities right here in our community.

You can drop-off your outdated and unused electronics seven days a week during operating hours at the Helena Industries Thrift Store at 2109 N. Last Chance Gulch. A $20 donation is suggested at time of drop-off to help us expand and sustain this program.

If you’re a local business, please call us at (406) 565-3091 to schedule a pick-up and learn about our data destruction services and pricing. You can also learn more online at www.helenaindustries.org.

Thank you to Opportunity Bank of Montana for supporting Helena Industries and employment opportunities for people with disabilities in our community.
