Here’s how to get rid of your electronic waste in October

The Portage County Solid Waste Management District is conducting e-waste collection events from 9 a.m. to noon on:

  • Oct. 9 at Rootstown Middle School
  • Oct. 16 at Nelson Circle
  • Oct. 23 in Freedom (8966 S.R. 700)
  • Oct. 30 in Randolph

People may drop off computers, laptops, phones, scanners, hard drives, unused printer cartridges and toner, servers, cell phones, stereos, VCR/DVD players, routers, MP3 players, cameras, keyboards, paper shredders, LCD monitors, game consoles and accessories, networking equipment, and speakers. A $5 fee will be charged for CRT monitors and printers. A $10 fee will be charged for TVs over 22 inches.

GreenBoard IT will process the material, and will not landfill it, Collins said.
