BLOOMINGTON, IN — The City of Bloomington Sanitation Department, in partnership with Vintage Tech Recyclers, will host its second Electronics Recycling Program.
The City invites residents of Bloomington and surrounding communities to dispose of unwanted electronics for recycling on Sat., February 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please bring your items to the Sanitation Garage, located at 3406 South Walnut St., just north of the City of Bloomington Animal Shelter.
“We are very excited to again be teaming up with Vintage Tech in an attempt to provide the community with the much-needed service of responsible electronics recycling,” said Shelby Walker, the City’s Sanitation Director. “Vintage Tech has partnered with several manufacturers to offset our cost for the event. We’re hoping for a success now and for future recycling events.”
The following items will be accepted: computers, laptops, monitors, LCDs, cell phones, printers, scanners, modems, cables, televisions, VCR’s, DVD players, camcorders, cameras, gaming systems, telephones, pagers, answering machines, typewriters, calculators, fax machines, copiers and postage meters. All items collected are recycled according to R2 and BAN standards, and hard drives will be wiped or destroyed using the same standards.
