If you have electronics you’re looking to throw out, the city is hosting a special recycling event next month.

The City of Lawrence, in partnership with Teknix Solutions, will provide a safe, efficient way for residents to dispose of their electronic waste from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 8 at Free State High School, 4700 Overland Drive.

A variety of electronic items will be accepted, including computers, laptops, printers, TVs, gaming systems and small appliances. CRT TVs and monitors will be accepted with a disposal fee of $40 each, payable in cash. A comprehensive list of acceptable items can be found on the city’s electronics recycling webpage.

The event will be on the east side of Free State High School, accessible via Overland Drive between Wakarusa Drive and Folks Road.

Teknix Solutions will ensure that all items are processed securely, protecting both your data and the environment. Teknix’s certified equipment handlers ensure that any electronics they receive are securely destroyed on site or wiped clean using NIST SP 800-88 standards.

If you can’t make it to the event, Lawrence’s Goodwill and Best Buy locations accept various electronics year-round.
