Aurora resumes electronics recycling



AURORA — The city has begun another year of offering residents a way to safely recycle their old and unwanted electronics.

The city began providing free electronics recycling to residents in 2010 and expanded the program year-round in 2012 when a state law took effect barring electronics from being disposed of in landfills. Last year, those efforts took in more than 275,000 pounds of electronic equipment, city officials said.
