Electronics Recycling Day

If you are like most of us, you have accumulated a lot of electronics over the years and probably have old or outdated electronics lying around in closets or stacked in the garage collecting dust.

Electronics (E-waste) often contain hazardous materials like lead and mercury. Since 2011, it is illegal to knowingly throw away e-waste such as computers, printers, cell phones, and televisions in your trash, as they are banned from landfills. So… what SHOULD you do with these hazardous devices?

West Central Solid Waste District is sponsoring an Electronics Recycling Day Saturday, June 17, 8 a.m.-noon at the Parke County 4-H Fairgrounds, Rockville (rain or shine).
