WAYNE, NJ - The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will hold an e-waste collection on Saturday, Feb. 4, (with a snow date of Saturday, Feb. 11) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. rain or shine at the Passaic County Para-transit facility parking lot, 1310 Route 23 north in Wayne.
The computer and electronics recycling collection program is free of charge to participants, and accepts virtually all computer and electronic items, including monitors, hard-drives, modems, keyboards, telephones and their systems, copiers, printers, phonographs, CD players, stereo systems, televisions, radios, fax machines, VCRs, DVD players, cell phones, laser and ink jet toner cartridges, video game systems, and up to 25 floppy disks, video games and/or VHS tapes per household. There is also a limit of five computer monitors and or TVs in total per household or business.
Businesses may participate at no fee, but must call to pre-register to ensure that they do not have a larger quantity of material than the recycler can handle on that day. In the event that a business has too large a quantity (generally over 25 individual pieces), the business may make an appointment with the recycler to pick up at their facility for a fee.
For further information, or for businesses to pre-register, call 973-305-5738. Recycling services provided by Advanced Recovery, Newark, and Port Jervis, N.Y.
