Green Vision

Each year Americans discard over 400 million units of E-waste. Less than 12% is being recycled. Y.A.L.E. students are using problem solving and technology skills to change that!

Through an exciting partnership with GreenVision®, a New Jersey-based non-profit, Y.A.L.E. School offers students employment and training in a growing area of the technology sector — one that benefits our planet and our communities.

Students at Y.A.L.E.’s Ellisburg and Northfield campuses dismantle, sort, and recycle donated electronics, including small household appliances and office equipment.  Their efforts reduce electronic waste in landfills and enable students to become responsible and informed stewards of our environment. Plus, students earn a paycheck as they gain marketable work experience in the Green Vision program.

While becoming work-ready, Y.A.L.E. students learn about sustainability, the positive impact of recycling on the environment, and the step-by-step process involved in disposing of e-waste following industry standards and best practices.

How the Recycling Program Works

  1. Old or unused electronics (almost anything with a plug!) can be donated at either the Y.A.L.E. Voc Co-op in Cherry Hill or at Y.A.L.E. School in Northfield, NJ.
  2. Donors arrange a drop-off time with the Green Vision program by calling 856- 229- 7443 or by emailing Noah McKay,
  3. Students sort, dismantle, and prepare broken down components for recycling while earning a paycheck.
  4. Processed components are sent to a certified e-waste handling plant for recycling and reuse.
  5. E-waste is kept out of our soil and water supply where it could harm plants and wildlife.
