Mondays, May 1, 8, 15 & 22 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. — REGISTER NOW

“PRC helps residents conveniently and cost-effectively dispose of a wide variety of items not accepted in curbside pickup,” according to PRC Executive Director Darren Spielman. “We need to divert these materials from landfills since many contain toxic elements that can leach into our waterways and our environment, while others contain valuable recyclables.”
For a $5 participant fee*, individuals can drop off unlimited cell/home phones, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, etc.) and video game consoles/DVD players.
For a FEE, individuals can drop off televisions, computer monitors and printers.
All Computer Monitors (flat screen & CRT) – $20 each
Televisions – $30 each
Console or Rear Projection TVs – $40 each
Printers – $5 each
*NOTE: $5 participant fee waived if individual pays for disposal of TV, tires or other materials listed in the FEE section above.
“If you are interested in disposing of e-waste, sign up soon,” says Spielman. “With a growing number of people concerned about responsibly stewarding resources, these events fill up quickly. Last year they all sold out.”
