“The medications that are collected will be incinerated. The electronics will go back to Jacksonville where they’re all shredded. Plastic separated from the metal and they’ll be melted down and made into new products,” said Bowles.

If you didn’t get to come to the event, Bowles says you can still bring your electronics to their office Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
