The following items are accepted free of charge: Computers, laptops, monitors, LCDs, cell phones, printers, scanners, modems, CD drives, cables, keyboards, mice, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, camcorders, cameras, game players and joysticks, telephones, pagers, answering machines, typewriters, calculators, adding machines, fax machines and copiers.


There will be a $15 fee for tube televisions and a $25 fee for CLP and wooden console televisions.
