May 21 and 22 Schrock Innovations, 2801 Pine Lake Road will be recycling old computer equipment from residents at no cost. Schrock has partnered with Alters Scrap Processing, 24 Hour Recycling and Techware Recycling to assist in processing the various components of computer equipment.
Gene Hanlon, Recycling Coordinator, said that “typically residents must pay a fee for recycling computer monitors. This free recycling effort allows residents to clean-out their closets of old computer equipment and demonstrates how local businesses can provide product stewardship for the products they sell.”
Thor Schrock, owner of Schrock Innovations, said that “the first monitor is free. If someone has additional monitors they must pay a $15 recycling fee. However, Schrock will give a $15 gift card for every monitor a customer pays to recycle.“ He said special arrangements can be made for individuals that have over 10 monitors.
Items accepted at the collection event are:
• Computer Towers
• Printers / Scanners
• Keyboards / Mice
• Computer Speakers
• Cell Phones
• Extra Batteries
• CRT and LCD Monitors (limit 1 free monitor per customer)
• No televisions will be accepted
The hours for the collection event are 10 am till 8 pm on Saturday, May 21 and Noon to 5:00 pm on Sunday, May 22nd.
Schrock also said that “every device that has data storage of any kind (hard drive, flash memory, cell phone, etc.) will be professionally wiped by our staff before it is sent anywhere to be recycled.”
