Webster, N.Y. (WHAM) - People looking to get rid of their old and electronics without throwing them in a landfill will be able to do so in Webster soon.
Three New York state lawmakers - State Senator Pam Helming, Assemblyman Mark Johns, and Assemblyman Brian Manktelow - will host an electronic recycling day in Webster next month.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 14 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Xerox complex off of Phillips Road at the intersection of Caracus Drive and Resende Road in Webster. Sunnking Inc., a local electronics recycling company, will run the event.
Computers, tube TVs and monitors, microwaves telephones, and other small electronics and appliances are being accepted. A full list of acceptable items can be found here.
A maximum of two TV sets or monitors per vehicle will be accepted.
“These events are getting bigger and bigger, and without this support, they would not be as successful. We thank everyone involved," Sunnking CEO Duane Beckett said.
Sunnking will donate $0.02 of every pound of recycled electronics to the Boy Scouts from Wayne County. The Boy Scouts will also be volunteering at the event.
