On Saturday, Oct. 6, the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste District is sponsoring the television & small electronics recycling collection.
This collection is for residents only. Materials from businesses will not be accepted. The event will take place from 9 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at Ottawa County Fairgrounds, Ohio163, Oak Harbor .
Residents will be charged to recycle CRT (lead/glass tube) televisions. The fee associated with the service reflects a portion of the District’s cost and is based on contract pricing with the electronics recycler. To determine the size of your television, measure your screen diagonally from corner to corner.
Fees for televisions are as follows:
TV’s 24” & smaller, $2; TV’s 25” & larger, $3; all console units & projection screen TV’s (limit 2 per resident), $5.
Additional materials that will be accepted at no charge include small electronics (e.g. – dvd players, vcr’s, stereos, etc.), flat panel televisions and cell phone equipment. All electronics will be processed in the U.S. and all plastics, metals, and leaded and non-leaded glass materials will be recycled. Only wood and fabric from the console and projection screen televisions will be
landfilled. Lead and mercury will be removed domestically and handled under U.S. regulations.
Computers are no longer accepted during the television recycling collection. A full-time option for computer recycling is available at Goodwill store locations throughout the area. Please do not recycle televisions at Goodwill Store locations. Goodwill Stores located within our District include:
