Cass County residents needing to dispose of electronic waste items will soon be able to do so at an event in Harrisonville.
The Cass County Sustainability Committee will hold an E-Waste Collection Event on Saturday, October 19, at The Family Center inside Mill-Walk Mall. The event will run from 8 a.m. until noon.
E-Waste recycling events will take your electronics for safe destruction and recycling.
Many items are accepted for free; others require a small fee to be accepted. A fee will apply to all CRT Monitors and CRT Televisions; this is due to the hazardous nature of some components in these items. All other items can be recycled for free.
Items accepted at no charge include: computers, keyboards, printers, laptops, tablets, cell phones, telephones, cassette players, DVD/CD players and VCRs.
Fees will apply for:
CRT computer monitors: $20/each;
CRT based televisions: $20/each;
Console and Rear Projection TVs: $20/each
Flat Screens (LCD & Plasma): $5 each
Applicable fees must be paid for by cash or check. Please leave original packaging at home.
Items not accepted include: CDs, floppy disks, flash drives or VCR tapes.
