This collection event is free to all Passaic County residents.

According to Nina Seiden, Solid Waste & Recycling Program Manager, almost all types of computer and electronic equipment will be accepted.

Residents may bring monitors, hard drives, printers, keyboards, modems, copier and fax machines, television sets, radios, VCRs and stereo systems as well as CD players and old telephone systems.

“By participating in this event, Passaic County residents and businesses will show their support for recycling these items into other useful products by keeping them out of our diminishing landfill space,” said Seiden. “As of January 1, 2011, lead, mercury and cadmium are prohibited from entering our groundwater and can no longer be thrown away in the regular garbage.”

Recycling services are provided by Advanced Recovery of Newark, N.J. and Port Jervis, N.Y.

Businesses must pre-register. For further information, please call 973-305-5738.
