Recycle your old electronics

March 9, 2006

Valdosta - You can get rid of your old electronics while helping the environment this weekend.

Southeastern Records Management in Valdosta is holding an electronic recycling collection on Saturday. They’ll be recycling all kinds of electronics, from cameras to computers, radios and televisions.

The usuable parts will taken out for resale, and the rest will be disposed of in a safe way. Organizers say it’s the best way to keep toxic materials found in electronics from ending up in our landfills.

"Our main concern and our main goal here is to protect our ground water and our sediment soil," said John Whitehead, Public Works Director.

You can drop your electronics off at Southeastern Records Management on the Madison Highway between 9:00 and 1:00 Saturday. There is a $10.00 charge to recycle televisions, but all other electronics are free.
