Orange Grove Elementary Charter School is participating in Recycle Forward, an innovative program that recycles used technology to raise money for new technology for schools, and is asking community members for help.

The school is recycling used cell phones, inkjet and laser cartridges, laptops, PDAs, iPods, video games, GPS Systems, DVD's, scientific and graphing calculators, LCD monitors and digital cameras.

Orange Grove Elementary Charter School is organizing a community drive between April 12 and May 14 at the school, 1225 Orange Branch Road in West Ashley. It is asking that community members and businesses drop off items.

Donations will be accepted throughout the year.

Local businesses and corporations also can participate. Recycle Forward participants will receive postage-paid shipping labels for the return of the used items. All donations are tax deductible.

For information about starting a recycling program, call 802-375-6721, ext. 209.
