Residents can Dispose of Unwanted Electronics This Month
County sponsoring computer and electronics recycling event Nov. 18 and 19.
Residents can dispose of old computers and other electronics Nov. 18 and 19 at the Passaic County Para-Transit Facility behind Ski Barn.
The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste and Recycling Programs (SWRP) are sponsoring the two-day long event.
The event will be held 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine, both days. The facility is located at 1310 Route 23 North.
Items that may be dropped off include: all types of computers and electronic systems, computer monitors, hard drives, printers, keyboards, modems, telephones, copiers, compact disc players, cell phones, stereo systems, televisions, radios, and fax machines.
Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, washers and dryers will not be accepted.
"By recycling unwanted computers and electronic equipment, we will keep out of our diminishing landfills and keep toxics such as lead, mercury, and cadmium from entering our groundwater,” said SWRP manager Nina Seiden. “As of Jan. 1, that’s the law.”
The program is free for residents. Businesses wanting to participate must pre-register by calling 973-305-5738.
