7/16/2013 2:29:00 PM Windom to host electronic waste collection on Friday, Saturday
If you've been looking for an opportunity to rid yourself of old computers, monitors, TVs, printers or appliances, your opportunity has arrived.
An electronics waste collection will be held Friday and Saturday at the east end of the Windom Recycling Building on the Cottonwood County Fairgrounds.
The collection will run from noon to 4 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
As in the past, the collection will be done in a "drive-through" manner. Those dropping off items for recycling will drive their vehicle into the east end of the building and exit at the west end. Organizers of the collection ask that no one enters the west end of the building.
What will the program be taking and how much will it cost?
For $1 per item, the collection will receive CPUs with keyboard and power supplies.
For $5 per item, it will take monitors, plastic TVs, desktop printers, desktop fax machines, DVD players, VCRs, stereos and typewriters.
There is a $7 fee for each wood console TV, $20 for each copier or floor model printer and $10 per appliance.
