Jackson to host electronic waste collection event

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

The City of Jackson is hosting its fifth annual E-cycle event on Saturday, June 23 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This special recycling event is an opportunity for Jackson residents to dispose of old or broken electronics, appliances, and other metal objects.

Jackson's solid waste customers should recycle their electronic items at the E-cycle event, as they will no longer be picked up on Clean up- Fix up Week.

Accepted items include lawn mowers or tractors (with gas and oil emptied), weed eaters, bicycles, air conditioners, televisions, microwaves, cameras, music players, cable, wires, radios, vacuum cleaners, laptops, monitors, typewriters, and many other types of electronics.

Items not accepted are AAA,AA,C,D, batteries, tires, radioactive materials, items with mercury, or any other potentially hazardous waste items. This is an E-cycling event, so no trash will be accepted, only recyclable materials.

Midwest Recycling Center from Crystal City will again be conducting the event. Typically each computer monitor or television would require a disposal fee, but thanks to a grant awarded to the vendor, all monitors and up to two televisions per Jackson household will be collected at no charge. Non-residents will be charged $15 per television.

M&J Shredding will be at the event from 9 a.m. to noon to offer document shredding services at no charge.

For more information contact the Sanitation Department at (573) 243-2333, the Public Works Department at (573)243-2300, or inquire online at www.jacksonmo.org, or e-mail recycle@jacksonmo.org.
