Electronics recycling returns to Carrier Mills on Saturday

Electronics recycling returns Saturday March 24th, 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 except used motor oil and batteries of all sizes, for free.

o, 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, or batteries are disposed of properly. Tires are no longer accepted!
