Every Saturday, Choose Life Recycling opens its door from 10 am to 3 pm. People can drop off their old electronics to be recycled.
"When an electronic goes to a landfill it doesn't break down in other words in there forever the toxins in it the lead can really contaminate the environment." Said Eric Mallet.
The company has taken on the responsibly of stewards of the environment and see recycling as an analogy to the gospel.
"When you think about recycling its breaking down something that is old and decrypted, the gospel breaks you down to what god meant you to be." Said Eric Mallet.
