Video: Thank You for Coming to 'E-Cycle'

News19 anchor J.R. Berry helps offload electronics on April 26, 2012.

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The annual News 19 E-Cycle Day was a huge success for our environment. 

We partnered with Richland County Solid Waste and here are the results:

  • Just over 1,400 vehicles came through the WLTX lot (that's a rate of about 3 cars per minute.)
  • 6 tractor trailer loads of old electronics - approximately 280,000 lbs./140 tons
  • 30,000 lbs/15 tons of old tires
  • 20,000 lbs/10 tons of scrap metal
  • More than a 1000 energy-efficient light bulbs were handed out.

From all of us here at News 19, thank you for recycling and helping to make The Midlands a better place to live.
