Electronics Recycling Saturday

Tomorrow, Saturday October 15, you can safely dispose of your unwanted computers, monitors, printers, TVs, VCRs, cell phones and other electronic devices at Essex County’s Computer and Electronics Recycling Day. Bring your old gear to the county’s maintenance garage at 99 West Bradford Avenue in Cedar Grove, which is across from the new Cedar Grove ball fields.

Recycling is free for all Essex County residents and it is for residential recycling only, the county says. Here’s a complete list of what you can and cannot drop off. The county will be accepting your stuff from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Electronic devices must, by state law,  be kept out of the regular garbage or recycling because the metals used to make these devices can do great harm to land and water. You should never put them at the curb in front of your home in Verona and if you bring them to the recycling center at Commerce Court, they must be put in the designated electronics area by the fence.

If you need a reminder on how to clear all personal information off your computer to recycle it safely, read this article from last year.
