ST. CLAIR COUNTY — The county’s Environmental Services Department will once partner with Vintage Tech Recyclers to host a free electronic/computer collection event on March 29 at Goodells County Park from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event allows residents, schools and small businesses the opportunity to dispose of their computer electronics and televisions in an environmentally friendly manner. 

Often, outdated electronic equipment ends up in landfills but many of their components contain hazardous materials that should be disposed of properly.

Items accepted for recycling include: televisions, computers (PCs), all-in-ones, laptops, modems, printers, monitors, CD-ROM drives, keyboards, mice, cables, hard drives, motherboards, mobile telephones, fax machines, MP3 players, PDA’s, video cassette recorders/players, digital video disk players, zip drives, scanners, telephones, stereos, radios and video game consoles. 

These items will be collected at no charge. Vintage Tech Recyclers specialize in electronic recycling/reuse/refurbishing and recovering all possible parts and units.
