Recycle your old electronics at UT Saturday

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The University of Toledo will help you get rid of those old electronics piled up in the basement, spare bedroom or closet.
 
A community electronics recycling drive will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 22 in parking area 28, located off East Rocket Drive by the Transportation Center near the Dorr Street entrance to main campus.
 
Most anything with a power cord will be accepted at the event to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
 
For those looking to recycle older televisions, there will be a disposal charge. Any older TV less than 24 inches will cost $10; sets 24 inches and larger will cost $20.
 
UT is working with Affinity Information Management to recycle the items from the drive.
 
The e-waste event is part of UT's Sustainability, Energy Efficiency and Design Program, known as SEED, and part of the University's RecycleMania efforts. RecycleMania is a national eight-week competition that this year began Feb. 2, in which universities across the United States and Canada compete for the most recycled materials collected by weight.
