Electronics recycling returns Saturday June 17th, in Village of Carrier Mills. The event is held on the Carrier Mills Municipal Building Parking lot, located at 101 North Mill Street, from 9 a.m. until Noon.
No longer can you throw electronics away and they be taken to a landfill. Anything that can be plugged in is required to be recycled. So on Saturday a recycler will be present and will collect anything that you can plug in and no longer works or you don’t want. Most of the items are free to dispose of, but not everything is free!
For a very small cost you have a local location to dispose of electronics properly. Console TV’s and big screen TV’s are $10. Small screen TV’s, computer monitors and small flat screens all cost $5 to be recycled. Due to recycling costs, the following items are no longer accepted for free: Vacuums, microwaves, printers and copiers now cost a $1 to be recycled.
In addition, the recycler will also accept used motor oil and batteries of all sizes, for free. Old paint will be accepted and can be dropped off as well, for $1 a gallon.
So, if you have an old TV or your refrigerator has quit and you don’t know what to do with it? Bring it to the electronics recycling and disposal event in Carrier Mills, this Saturday. Again the time for the event is 9 a.m. until Noon. The event is not limited to Carrier Mills residents, anyone from the area may bring items, so electronics, paint or batteries are disposed of properly. Tires are no longer accepted!
