e-Scrap for Camp was created by Sunnking in 2010 to support Camp Good Days and Special Times. Funds raised through recycling electronics are donated to help improve the quality of life for children, adults, and families whose lives have been touched by cancer. The combined efforts of everyone who recycles through this annual event help to make a huge difference, not only in the lives of people who have been affected by this dreaded disease, but also by ensuring the safe and responsible recycling of thousands of pounds of electronics.
2018 will mark the 8th e-Scrap for Camp fundraising campaign. In the first 7 years, a total of 3,106,365 lbs. of electronics were collected and recycled, resulting in over $75,000 donated to Camp Good Days on behalf of Sunnking.
Businesses and organizations in the Buffalo and Rochester area are encouraged to sign up to collect electronics from their employees, friends and family members for a two week period. Sunnking provides boxes to collect electronics, and will pick them up for free! For every pound of electronics that Sunnking recycles from your organization, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Camp Good Days to fund future programs.
Please note: This year, you have the option to open your collection to the public if you would like and we will feature your company logo on our website. If you choose to have a public collection, your collection cannot accept Tube Televisions/Monitors.

About Camp Good Days & Special Times
Camp Good Days and Special Times, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life threatening challenges, was founded by Gary Mervis in 1979, following the diagnosis of his youngest daughter, Teddi, with a malignant brain tumor. What was started to provide Teddi and 62 other children with cancer (21 from Rochester, 21 from Buffalo, 21 from Syracuse) with a residential camping experience, has grown to become one of the largest organizations of its kind, having served as model for other organizations and cancer treatment centers around the world. Providing residential camping programs and year-round recreational and support activities and events, Camp Good Days has served more than 44,000 campers from 22 states and 28 foreign countries. Camp Good Days maintains accreditation from the American Camp Association (ACA) and has been inducted into the Safety 1st Hall of Fame by Markel Insurance Company.
