At no cost, individuals can drop off cell/home phones, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, etc.), expanded polystyrene packaging material, microwave ovens, video game consoles/DVD players and glass bottles, jugs and jars.

“It’s important to divert electronics and other hard-to-recycle materials from landfills since many contain toxic elements that can harm the environment, while others contain valuable materials that can be recycled,” according to PRC Executive Director Darren Spielman.

This will mark the 20th season PRC is getting rid of hard to recycle materials and have facilitated over 3 million pounds of e-wast since 2003.
