September 26, 2009
 
E-Waste Fest 2009 is meant to draw attention to the ever-growing need for members of society to engage in environmentally smart practices and begin to incorporate alternative energy in their daily lives,” said David Arpin, President and CEO of Arpin Group, Inc.   “We will provide people in the local community with the opportunity to dispose of their electronic waste while also enjoying a day full of entertainment and information on how to ‘go green.’”
 
E-Waste Fest’s headline act is legendary Rhode Island rhythm & blues dance-band Steve Smith & The Nakeds. The following is a partial schedule of the day’s entertainment (schedule may be subject to change):
 
 
E-Waste Fest will accept the following electronic waste items for recycling: CPUs/computers, servers, keyboards, spare computer parts, monitors, laptops, network equipment, mice, laser printers, routers, radios, scanners, fax machines, UPSs, cables and wires, aluminum, copper, cell phones, ink/laser cartridges, TVs, window-unit air conditioners and telephones. All will be accepted for a 20 cents per pound donation. The following items will NOT be accepted at this event: alkaline batteries, white goods, microwaves, toaster ovens and de-humidifiers along with electrical items such as irons, vacuum cleaners, toys and dust busters, etc. 
 
In order to help reduce concerns about identity theft, E-Waste Fest will offer sensitive document shredding services for 35 cents per pound.  There will be a mobile shredding truck at the event.
 
The E-Waste Festival is scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Arpin campus located at 99 James P. Murphy Industrial Highway, West Warwick, R.I. However, the e-waste collection and paper-shredding will take place in a separate office complex, adjacent to the Arpin campus at Coastal International, 2 Szydlo Drive, West Warwick, just off J.P.
