Hobbs Brook hosted the event with three goals in mind. The first was to offer a much-needed recycling opportunity for tenants within the park, many of whom packed their cars with everything from computers, to microwaves, to vacuum cleaners and more. The second goal was in accordance with Hobbs Brook’s GREEN initiative, which was formed to promote sustainability across all Hobbs Brook endeavors. The third goal underscores Hobbs Brook’s culture of supporting community-based programs and activities. Known throughout the greater Boston area as a philanthropic organization, Hobbs Brook continues to find new ways of supporting programs that in turn support community development, job creation, and the concept of ‘paying it forward’. Through these events, Hobbs Brook tenants have donated a total of 133,791 pounds of electronic waste over the past five years.
