Free disposal May 19 for household electronics
Westsiders, along with the rest of the city, will have a one-day chance for free disposal of household electronic items Saturday, May 19 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will be at El Paso County's Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility, 3255 Akers Drive (accessible only from North Carefree Circle). Although there is no disposal fee, participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Care and Share Food Bank.
The only items accepted will be electronics - including computer components, small (19-inch or smaller) television sets, stereo/video components, cell phones, digital cameras, pagers, PDAs and camcorders. No household appliances, microwave ovens, paint or chemical waste will be collected.
The collected electronics will be disassembled and the glass, plastics and metals will be used to make new products.
