“We are able to offer these e-recycle events free of charge to the public,” said Joan Groenhout, coordinator of the church’s metal recycle ministry. “However, there is a $10 decommissioning charge for all televisions for lead abatement.”
Anything that plugs in or runs on a battery is considered electronics and will be accepted for recycling, she said. Metal will also be accepted during the event.
There is a $10 charge for any item containing Freon. An arrangement with a local firm that is qualified to remove Freon assures that refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers are decommissioned prior to recycling, Groenhout said.
