E-Waste Recycling Event This Sunday at First Unitarian Church: Drop Off Your Working and Non-Working Electronics

 

After you drop off your new or gently used children’s goods at Pierrepont Park this Sunday (see last post), head over to the First Unitarian Church on Pierrepont St. to drop off your working and non-working electronics between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Dig out all those old cellphones and laptops taking up space in your drawers and closets. And remember: It’s illegal to throw out your electronics in the trash.
