- Arpin of Rhode Island supplied the manpower and equipment to facilitate six e-waste collection events, three of which were charity events that raised monies for Rhode Island-based non-profit organizations Save The Bay and Audubon Society. The events, open to all RI residents and businesses, and have resulted in the collection of over 80,000 pounds of e-waste being diverted from the Central Landfill to date. The company is currently working on taking e-waste collection nationwide by engaging members of its agency family in the program.
