Electronics, Appliance Recycling Set Saturday09:00AM / Thursday, April 19, 2012
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A "Spring Cleaning" community electronic recycling event will be held on Saturday, April 21, at the Steeple City Plaza parking lot adjacent to All Saints Episcopal Church from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. All Saints Church (formerly St. John's Episcopal) is sponsoring the event.
Electronic recycling of all types of electronics and appliances will be accepted. Charges are $5 for most electronics, $8 for computer monitors, $10 for larger appliances and $20 for televisions. Items accepted for recycling include computers, monitors, laptops, camcorders, phones, air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines and dryers, and televisions. Volunteers will be there to help remove and carry items from your vehicle to the recycling truck.
"This is an opportunity for spring cleaning of your old TVs, phones, computers and other electronics that may be taking up space in the house or garage," said John Hockridge, parish administrator of All Saints, which also includes the former St. Mark's of Adams. "We'll take everything with a plug, working or not. At the same time, this event provides the added benefit of proper recycling of electronics that you might not otherwise have a way to dispose of properly."
The recycling event is open to residents, schools and businesses in North Adams, Adams, Williamstown and surrounding communities.
