Last month WVXU reported:

Hamilton County residents have recycled more than 116,000 pounds of old computer equipment and televisions so far this year and the Recycling and Solid Waste District says there's still time to build on that number.  The county's free drop-off program is still available on Saturdays (except the Labor Day holiday on August 31)  from 8 a.m. to noon until October 26.

Study projects much lower cost for new crime lab
