UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
HTC will celebrate National Earth Day by hosting the 11th Annual Green Fair on Wednesday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be held at the HTC store in Conway on Highway 501 across from HGTC and will be filled with giveaways, music, and opportunities for community members to recycle old items.
Sustainability and education about the importance of conservation and recycling will be the focus of the event. Community members are welcome to attend free of charge and take part in a variety of festivities, including:
- Sign up for paperless billing,
- Drop off old telephone directories and cell phones for recycling,
- Drop off e-waste, any kind of used electronic devices including batteries for recycling,
- Drop off sensitive documents for FREE onsite shredding by Shred-it, and
- Visit booths set up by local environmentally responsible organizations to learn about green initiatives.
Green Fair guests will also have an opportunity to demo TV MAX, the all-new streaming tv service, enter to win one of several Amazon FireTV Sticks from HTC, enjoy music, hotdogs and refreshments, and take home a few free gifts. Local mascots will make an appearance and HTC will offer product specials, including 20% off wireless accessories.
“Sustainability is a top priority at HTC, and the Green Fair is a way to introduce simple ways to recycle and positively impact our environment,” said Tom Vitt, director of marketing communication. “When the communities we serve are able to come together for fun and learn how conservation plays a vital role in minimizing our eco-footprint, it’s a win for everyone.”
If you are unable to attend the Green Fair, HTC encourages everyone to please be responsible and recycle directories and other items at the nearest Horry County Solid Waste Authority Recycling Center location. A list of recycling centers is provided in the preliminary pages of the HTC Directory or online at www.solidwasteauthority.org.
