You may have seen this on Mountain Views last night, here's the details...


A free electronic waste collection event will be held in east side towns of Summit County on Saturday, May 16th as part of the countywide clean-up program scheduled for that same day.

      Electronic waste will be collected by an e-waste recycling truck at five drop-off locations:

      Henefer: 8-9 am at the Henefer Town Park

      Coalville: 9:30 – 11 am at the Summit County Fair Park

      Kamas: 12 noon – 3 pm in the Summit County Library parking lot

      Peoa: 9-11 am at the Church

      Jeremy Ranch: 9 am – 1 pm at the Park and Ride off of I-80

    The times for collection are specific because a GRX recycling truck will be making stops and loading the e-waste at those times.  

    Residents and businesses can dispose of all unwanted cell phones, pagers, PDAs, Ipods, computers, CPUs, keyboards, scanners, boom boxes, stereos, television sets, monitors, laptops, microwaves. Drop off is free of charge.

    Electronic waste should not be placed in the trash because many of them contain heavy metals such as mercury.

    “Electronic waste is a hazardous waste,” said Shirin Spangenberg of County Curbside. “This event makes e-waste collection accessible to people in the eastern side of the county so they can recycle these items conveniently.

    The free e-waste collection event is made possible by a grant from the Recycling Coalition of Utah. For more information, contact County Curbside at (435) 901-2568 or 503-1840.
