Albany - You know that old computer monitor you have that's just collecting dust, now's the time to get rid of it. For no charge at all, you can drop off computers, monitors, printers, cameras and even radios Saturday in the parking lot behind the Albany Civic Center.

TV drop offs are accepted for a ten dollar fee, because they can't be recycled. Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful is hosting the event to keep toxic chemicals out of our landfills.

KADB Director Judy Bowles said, "About 2% of what's in your landfill is electronics. But it accounts for well over 40 percent of the toxins that are in the landfill."

Last year, volunteers collected 37,000 pounds of old electronics. The drop off is open from 9-1 PM rain or shine.

For more information call 430-5257.
