Boone County residents eager to find a safe disposal solution for their unwanted stockpile of old electronic devices now have a convenient drop site.
Lafayette’s Oscar Winski eRecycling, a longtime recycler in the region, made its first appearance at the Zionsville Farmers Market on June 16.
“The Farmers Market patrons understand the importance of recycling electronics as it relates to sustainability,” said Thom Davis, general manager of Oscar Winski eRecycling.
eRecycling accepts virtually any household device that plugs into the wall or runs on batteries, and they are taken free of charge. Exceptions include televisions and monitors as well as microwaves – which will be accepted for a $10 fee.
Light bulbs, water softeners, refrigerators, freezers and dehumidifiers will not be accepted at this time. A complete listing of electronic items Oscar Winski eRecycling will accept is available at oscarwinski.com/erecycling.
