BERRIEN SPRINGS — Community members, businesses and residents from surrounding communities are encouraged to recycle their unwanted electronic items at Andrews University’s annual recycling event.
It is set for 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the transportation building on campus. Green Earth Electronics Recycling will be the operator.
Accepted items include computers, laptops, monitors, TVs, telephones, cameras, DVD players, cords/cables, printers, toner cartridges, cell phones, refrigerators, air conditioners, appliances, car batteries and any other electronic items or items with a cord. All hard drives are wiped to Department of Defense specifications or shredded, according to a news release.
Because of the hazardous nature of CRT glass, there is a small recycling fee of $5 for CRT computer monitors and $10 for tube televisions.
