The High Sierra Squadron of the Commemorative Air Force has joined forces with eCycleBEST to recycle donated laptops and smart phones into cash for the restoration effort.

Reno, NV. 22 June 2010 - The High Sierra Squadron, Commemorative Air Force is operating and restoring two historic aircraft. They have partnered with eCycleBEST to promote the recycling of eWaste while at the same time raising necessary cash to support these two examples of aviation history.

High Sierra Squadron has two classic and spectacular examples of World War II and Korean era aircraft under maintenance and restoration. They are flying a U.S. Navy N3N-3, two-seat, open cockpit, biplane trainer, built in 1941 by the Navy. The team is also restoring to flight status, a U.S. Air Force single-seat F-86F Sabre Jet fighter, built in 1952 by North American.

"The Commemorative Air Force (CAF )was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans", stated Colonel Charles Gillespie, High Sierra Squadron Commander. "We rely on donations to maintain these historic aircraft and receive no government funding."

David Costa, CEO, Renegade Concepts, Inc. has been contracted by eCycleBEST to manage the program. "We saw an opportunity to serve many people with this fund raising program", states Costa. "Everyone wins with this simple concept. The civic organizations raise money with a simple system. Businesses and individuals can easily transfer their unwanted or unused qualified devices. Everyone wins, including the environment, with our recycling efforts at eCycleBEST."

Businesses and individuals who wish to participate by donating their unwanted laptops and smart phones need simply send an email to eCycleBEST@gmail.com, and eCycleBEST takes care of all the details. Under this program even shipping is free. Complete documentation of the donation is provided.

The High Sierra Squadron has these historic aircraft available for public display at the Reno Tahoe Stead Airport. They meet each week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Anyone with an interest in the preservation of historic aircraft is encouraged to become a member.
