In December, the Sidney Library held an electronics recycling event. We recently received the results and wanted to share them with you. Through this event, we recycled:
- 63 computers (1295 lbs)
- 79 TVs (4116 lbs)
- 61 computer monitors (1659 lbs)
- 3040 lbs in other electronics
The total weight recycled was over 10,000 lbs! These items will be recycled properly, thanks to REACT. We are glad we could provide this service to the community and will be sure to let you know if we hold another event soon.
