Final weekend for computer/TV recycling
The final computer and TV recycling drop-off for this year will be this weekend.
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.
A special one-day collection is planned for January 18 to recycle electronics after the holidays.
Acceptable Items: CPUs, hard drives, personal copiers, docking stations, monitors, scanners, printers, cellular telephones, televisions, hard drives, tape and disk drives, VCR and DVD players, VHS tapes, circuit boards, cables, main frames, servers, terminals, fax machines, PDAs, back up batteries, chips, keyboards, mice, modems, computer speakers, CD Rom drives and laptops.
There are two locations: Cohen Norwood, 5038 Beech Street and Cohen Cincinnati, 4538 Kellogg Avenue.
You'll need proof that you're a Hamilton County resident, such as a driver's license or utility bill, to participate.
You can get more information from the Recycling Hotline at 946-7766 or at www.HamiltonCounty Recycles.org.
The non-profit group "ReSource" is holding a week-long shred event for other non-profit groups. You must bring a 501(c)3 letter of determination granting 501(c)(3) status.
Nov. 4-8 from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at ReSource's Sharonville warehouse at 3610 Park 42 Drive Google Map
