Recycle Old Electronics

Residents of the Illinois Quad Cities can get help tomorrow cleaning out their garages and basements. The Rock Island County Waste Management Agency will hold what it calls a "collection event" for used, old, and un-wanted electronics.

Staff Coordinator, Laura Berkley, says the agency has been holding one or two of these a year, since 2011.
It's open only to Illinois residents, but not businesses.

Berkley says the most common items turned in at these electronic collections are televisions and computers, but micro-wave ovens and dvd players are also accepted. 
It'll be held tomorrow (sat) from 9 am to 1 pm at the Rock Island County fairgrounds in East Moline. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
