According to the EPA, an estimated 600,000 tons of monitors, 67,000 tons of computer mice and keyboards and 20,000 tons of mobile devices are disposed of each year in the United States. Just a small percentage of that and other electronic waste, or e-waste, is recycled. But you can do your part to properly, and safely, recycle your old electronic products.

Hamilton County residents have recycled more than 68,000 pounds of e-waste since the May 1 start of a computer and TV recycling program.  The Recycling and Solid Waste District's free drop-off program is open August 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the CSI/Republic Transfer Station at 10751 Evendale Drive. 

The program won't be open any other Saturday in August, but it is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. through October 31, excluding holidays.   There will also be weekend collection times on September 8 and October 13.
