Bethel Middle School will hold a county-wide electronic waste (e-waste) drive Nov. 28-29 to[more] collect unused and disposable electronics and electronic parts that cannot be disposed of through standard methods of waste collection and recycling.
New this year, the Bethel Green Team will also collect small household size batteries (AA, AAA, C, D) for the county. Lynn Cardin, teacher and Green
Coordinator at Bethel said, “This is our fourth year to do the semi-annual
electronic waste drive. Electronic items need to be disposed of in a safe manner,
but many people don’t know how and simply throw away things such as
batteries, computers and television sets in a dumpster. We can help get rid of
your e-waste items the correct way without damaging the environment.”
The community is invited to drop off personal electronics to the event and
receive free recycling. Drop off items from 7 a.m.-4 p.m., on Nov. 28 and 29.
Examples of acceptable items: Computers, fax machines, scanners, printers,
copiers, DVD/VCR players, televisions, cables or wires, MP3 players and cell
Unacceptable items: Non-computer plastics, hazardous materials, iron-containing
metals, paper or wood, refrigerators, other appliances.
