Recycle electronics, help the band

Hillsboro High School's Spartan band will host a fundraising event Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that gives community members a way to recycle their electronic devices and help student musicians at the same time.

Bring your obsolete computers, cell phones Ethernet cables, phone cords, mismatched chargers, lawnmowers and barbecue grills to Sunset Esplanade's Safeway parking lot, 2105 S.E. Tualatin Valley Highway in Hillsboro, with electronics in tow. Recycling services will be provided by EG Metals, an environmental technologies company based in Hillsboro.

Band members are requesting a $10 per-car donation, which will help defray costs of annual competitions, sheet music and more.
