On Saturday, May 31, Boy Scout Troop #211 will partner with Tech Dump, an electronics recycling nonprofit, to collect unwanted electronics (gently used, obsolete, or damaged) as a fundraiser.

Bring computers, cell phones, electrical cords, internal/external drives, other misc. electronic accessories, TVs, and monitors ($15-45 fee for CRT TVs and monitors — not flat panels — see for more info. Tech Dump will destroy all information and data at their facility in Golden Valley.

Tech Dump is a Minnesota and Hennepin County licensed electronics recycler. To find out more and for a list of accepted items, visit their website at

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the Advent Lutheran Church at 9475 Jefferson Highway in Maple Grove.

The troop shared, “This fundraiser will keep our weekend camping or outing fees low, as we do lot of weekend camping or one day outings like rock climbing. We even have goal to go zip-lining for the first time this year. We also need to replace some tents and camp cookware.”
