Did you get a new gadget for Christmas? Do you now have old electronics you don’t want?
A new program begins today at the Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District that allows county residents to dispose of unwanted electronics for free at the Bartholomew County Landfill, 811 E. County Road 450S, or the Columbus/Bartholomew Recycling Center, 720 S. Mapleton St.
The Electronic Waste Recycling Program is offered through a partnership with Greenwave of Indianapolis at no charge to the county, said Heather Siesel, education coordinator for the solid waste district. The company provides containers, pallets and a trailer for the electronics. When the trailer is full, the company swaps it out with an empty trailer. The program is expected to continue indefinitely.
Siesel said anyone with questions about what electronic items the center will take can call before bringing items in at 376-2614.
