NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— North Salem residents turned out in force on April 1 for an e-waste day hosted by the North Salem Improvement Society.

Organizers said the event, which traditionally had been held during the week, was held on a weekend day to enable more residents to get rid of their electronic waste. 

Close to 100 carloads of e-waste were brought to the town’s recycling pod.

This year’s event was so successful, organizers said, that they plan to do it again in the fall. Residents dropped off, among other things, old monitors, printers, motherboards, routers and computer-system units.
