Electronics Recycling Day January 26 at Landfill

A landfill ban on electronics went into effect two years ago in North Carolina making it illegal to dispose of televisions, computers, printers, video games and other electronics in the landfill. These items must be recycled.

On Saturday, January 26 from 7:30 AM until noon, electronics will be collected for free recycling at the landfill located at 360 Dalton Road in Mocksville.

Items that will be collected include PCs, hard drives, laptops, televisions, keyboards and mice, servers, cell phones, PDAs, video games, iPods and MP3 players, network equipment, consumer electronics, scanners, printers, copiers, GPS units, typewriters, telephone systems, rechargeable batteries and ink and toner cartridges.

There are other recycling options for many of these items, and working electronics can still be donated to Goodwill.

Davie County will offer three additional electronic collection events in 2013 on Saturday, April 27, July 27 and October 26 at the same location.
