E-Cycling Event to be Held Saturday

Northampton County will host an electronics recycling event Saturday, May 19, at Easton Area High School.

Do you have an old VCR in your attic? A computer monitor that's seen better days?

Don't just toss them away, recycle them. On Saturday, 's Department of Community and Economic Development will hold an electronic recycling event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at .

Whether it's an old fax machine, printer, phone or answering machine, residents can drop them off free of charge. The only cost is for getting rid of batteries (75 cents a pound) or fluorescent lamps (25 cents each).

For more information, contact Tom Dittmar, the county's environmental conservation coordinator, at tdittmar@northamptoncounty.org.

Charging for recycling, c'mon Tom can't this be built into your budget?

There is only a fee for batteries and fluorescent lights -- everything else is free of charge. This is common practice. During township clean-up days, for example, there is a fee to drop off items like batteries and tires because of how these items have to be properly disposed of.
