• Town of Brownsburg holds post-holiday electronics recycling event

    December 21, 2012 No comments

    The Town of Brownsburg is providing area residents and businesses a safe way to dispose of unwanted electric and electronic devices after the holiday season. The Town is partnering with Technology Recyclers for a free recycling event in January.

    Community members can conveniently drop off devices including old cell phones, computers, printers, copiers, fax machines, VCRs, DVD players, satellite TV equipment, and microwave ovens at 1500 E. Main Street (former car dealership) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 12. CRT televisions and computer monitors will be accepted for a $5 fee. See the full list of items that will be accepted free of charge for recycling at www.brownsburg.org.

    Brownsburg Town Manager Grant Kleinhenz said, “A lot of us will be giving or receiving electronics as holiday gifts this year. The Town is pleased to offer an easy way to get rid of old, unwanted devices. Getting area residents to recycle e-waste instead of putting it in the trash keeps electronic equipment from leaking hazardous substances into the landfills and, in the long-term, protects our water quality.”

    Since holding its first town-wide recycling event in 2010, the Town of Brownsburg has helped divert more than 60 tons of waste – from paper and plastics to hazardous household products, appliances and electronics – from reaching Indiana landfills.
