The Kentucky Heirs had an impactful 2021 year working on and helping pass KY HJR11, organizing several local creek sweeps, setting up E-waste drives at local schools and throughout the community, and speaking and presenting at multiple public events and meetings to raise awareness about the dangers of e-scrap in landfills.
We have fostered our strong relationship with partner EcoCell and also delivered our collected e-waste for safe recycling and repurposing. HJR11 has been in research commission with the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, and studies on the economic impact and feasibility of adopting an electronic waste disposal program have been conducted. We are hoping this resolution will be re-introduced during this next legislative session in 2022!
For next year we are working on educational programs and community events to open more minds — needed especially here, inland, in our land-locked states — for healthy change and to empower others to take a stand and create change to address the global water crises and save our world’s oceans, waterways, and therefore humanity as a whole.
