Expanding on last year’s success with recycling opportunities, this year ecoTech Management will again is on hand to collect all E-waste items again. “Gather up all those old computers, faxes, phones, small appliances, cell phone, tablets, gaming devices, TV’s radios, anything that plugs in or runs on battery. Special pickups can be arranged if your home or business has too much to bring to us…we will come to you. Remember it is now the law, you cannot dispose of your Ewaste at the dump,” reminds Beth Ann Felshman, one of the Earth Day organizers. “Here is a free and legal way for you to dispose of these items and help our Earth Day Celebrations as well.” Additional recycling and repurposing opportunities have been added this year.
