How can I safely get rid of an old TV or computer monitor?
The city of Lawrence will be host to an electronic recycling event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, May 15, in the Free State High School parking lot, 4700 Overland Drive. A recycling fee (cash or checks only) is $10 for a computer monitor and $15 for a television. There is no charge for other electronics. Large appliances such as refrigerators and air conditioning units or hazardous waste, such as fluorescent bulbs, are not accepted. For that, contact the city’s Waste Reduction and Recycling division to schedule an appointment at 832-3030.
