The Department of Public Health is partnering with the Public Health Student Association and Omega Delta Sigma on “Operation Cell Phone Drop” – an effort to collect recycled cell phones and tablets in support of the Wounded Warrior Project. Now through Oct. 15, individuals can drop off their used cell phones and tablets to three locations on campus: the Department of Public Health (McLane Hall, Room 184), Lab School (Room 9) and the Veterans Services Office (McLane Hall Annex, Room 20-24). “It is estimated that the average American has two old cell phones in a drawer at home,” said Dr. Miguel Perez, professor in the Department of Public Health, “Through Operation Cell Phone Drop, we hope to reduce the amount of e-waste, while providing much-needed resources to those who’ve served our country.” All makes and models of cell phones are accepted. Each donated phone will be cleared of personal data by Second Wave Recycling prior to distribution. INFO: Miguel Perez, 559.278.2897 or
