Electronics Recycling Event This Saturday
Metech Recycling will be back in Estes Park for an electronics recycling collection this Saturday, May 17 at the Fairgrounds parking lot off Rooftop Way, just south of the Senior Center. The collection will take place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The Town of Estes Park’s electronics recycling event allows residents to conveniently and responsibly recycle old television sets, cell phones, iPods and many other electronics. More than 95 percent of all materials will be fully recycled for remanufacture; no materials will be incinerated or land-filled.
Metech reported that 27,740 pounds of electronics were collected at the last event in December, which was rescheduled from its original date in October due to the flood.
There is no fee to recycle desktops, laptops, cell phones, PDAs, iPods or MP3 players. The fee for recycling televisions and monitors up to 20 inches is $10; televisions and monitors 21- 32 inches cost $18; and televisions and monitors larger than 32 inches cost $1 per diagonal inch. Other large electronics cost $5; small electronics cost $2. A full list of accepted electronics may be found at www.metechrecycling.com/list.htm.
