NOTE CHANGE OF DATE: Electronic Recycling Day October 10th, 2018
NOTE CHANGE OF DATE: On Wednesday, October 10th, 2018 Clean Community System will be accepting electronics in conjunction with Keep America Beautiful Great American Clean-up day by conducting an electronic recycling event from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm at their office on Sky Park Road.
Our main focus will be TV’s-LCD & tube or console. Other items being accepted: computer monitors-CRT; CD players; laptop computers; modems; radios; power network cables; and VCR’s/DVD players.
This service is available thanks in part to a grant received from Nebraska Environmental Trust; however, there will be limit to the number of TV’s that can be accepted this day. When the maximum poundage allowed by our grant is reached, we will have to cease accepting any additional TV’s. Due to the size and complexity of wood console and rear projection TV’s there will be a flat fee of $50.00. We hope the general public can understand the importance of recycling and why we have to charge a fee for the larger TV’s.
At our last one-day collection we took in 45,803 pounds. Of this amount, 24,440 pounds were old CRT TV’s, 4,000 of console and projection TV’s and 17,363 pounds of computer equipment and misc. items. This collection was slightly down from the previous years collection of 48,600 pounds. We still feel this was a successful event.
EDIT: At this event we collected 26,154 lbs. of electronic waste from 146 community members. Way to Recycle, G.I. Area!
