Electronics collection a success

You can continue recycling computers year-round          Send a link to a friend

[NOV. 5, 2005]  The Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency, in a collaborative venture with Retro-Tech Electronics, recently sponsored an electronics recycling collection, which was a huge success. Nearly 13 tons of electronic equipment was collected and diverted from area landfills. The collection provided area households and businesses an opportunity to dispose of unwanted electronic items in an environmentally responsible manner, resulting in the removal of these items from area landfills, further reducing the potential for health and environmental concerns.

The following is a breakdown of items collected:

  • Monitors, 2.5 tons

  • CPUs (whole and parts), 3 tons

  • TVs, 2.5 tons

  • Household, 1.5 tons

  • Printers, 2 tons

  • Keyboards and mice, 1.25 tons

The agency thanks the Logan County Fair Association for use of the fairgrounds site and thanks Bob Thomas for his assistance in setting up for the event. Thanks also to Cross Brothers Implement for the use of the forklift and to Dick Logan Auto Care Center for the use of the marquee sign. The agency also acknowledges the Lincoln Junior Woman's Club for providing volunteers to assist with traffic flow.
