City hosting drive to recycle electronics

September 10, 2008


Looking for a way to get rid of your old televisions, computers or printers?

The city of Lawrence is hosting an electronic recycling drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Free State High School, 4700 Overland Drive.

Topeka-based Asset LifeCycle, which recycles electronic materials, will help discard your old computer monitors, desktop and laptop computers, keyboards and other computer equipment, printers, copiers, scanners, telephones, cell phones, pagers, fax machines, televisions, VHS and DVD players and hand-held devices.

There is a $5 fee for computer monitors, and a $15 fee for television sets. There are no charges for other items.

Large appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioning units, will not be accepted.

I call bullsh*t. What company is recycling old computer monitors for free?

My thought exactly, i was going to drop some stuff off till I heard I would be charged. I guess i'm not surprised since the city of Lawrence is hosting.

Why would we have to pay a fee to drop off electronics for which the Topeka company is in the business of recycling and selling the parts and materials for a profit?
