Legislator Hardwick announces Electronic Recycling Day in Tonawanda

Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick, R-Tonawanda, reminds residents to gather all unwanted computer and electronic items for an Electronic Recycling Day planned for this weekend.

Sponsored by Erie County, General Motors and UAW, the event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, at GM Tonawanda Engine Plant #5, 280 Vulcan St., between Niagara Street/River Road and Kenmore Avenue.

“I encourage all residents who have computers and electronic items that they no longer want to bring them to this event,” Legislator Hardwick said. “By properly recycling these materials, less waste ends up in our landfills, and we reduce toxic chemical emissions.”

Items that will be accepted include: computers, monitors, terminals, network equipment, keyboards, mice, other accessories, and printers/scanners. Also, cell phones, iPods, VCRs/DVD players, fax machines, circuit boards, video game systems, batteries and universal power supplies. Televisions will be accepted for a $5 charge.

Participants may be required to verify that materials are generated by households. For information, please call
858-6800, option 4.

Items that will not be accepted include: fluorescent bulbs, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, kitchen/personal appliances, household hazardous waste, or pharmaceuticals.

For additional information about Electronic Recycling Day, please call Legislator Hardwick at 873-3438 or
