Through a combined outreach initiative, Verizon and Montgomery County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett encouraged employees and area residents to participate in the county's Community Service Week as well as Verizon's Employee Office Supply Swap and free Electronics Recycling Rally at the company's Silver Spring, Md., office on Friday, Oct. 25.

Several county officials including the Office of Community Partnerships Director Bruce Adams joined Leggett and Verizon's Mid-Atlantic Region Vice President Tony Lewis and other company executives to announce this collaborative effort.  

During the rally, more than 100 environmentally conscious Marylanders donated a variety of electronics from their offices and homes.  Seventeen pallets of unwanted recyclables were collected.  The supplier disposing of the discarded items will adhere to Verizon’s zero-landfill objective, meaning the materials will be reused or recycled so that they do not end up in a landfill.
