BUFFALO, NY - Green Options Buffalo held their annual bicycle recycling drive Saturday, but this year was a little different.

The non-profit organization was also accepting old electronics like cell phones, televisions, computers and mp3 players. They teamed up with electronic recycling organization Sunnking to take part in E-Scrap for Camp.

A percentage of the profits based on the total weight of electronics collected will be donated to Camp Good Days.

Last year, over 250,000 pounds of old electronics were donated through Sunnking, equalling almost $8,000.

Henry Raess, Community Outreach Coordinator said Green Options Buffalo saw this opportunity as not only a good way to help the environment by keeping the electronics out of the mainstream waste system but by helping a good cause.
