If you live in the greater Williston area and have damaged or outdated electronic devices, you can get rid of it all April 26 and 27.
It’s an event called “Erase Your Ewaste,” and it’s hosted by North Dakota Recycling Services in Williston.
The annual event focuses on proper recycling of waste electronics to protect the environment, health and the longevity of the local landfill.
Now in its fourth year, “Erase Your Ewaste” has recycled more than 260,000 pounds of electronic waste to date.
Nearly all electronic items can be dropped off for free. Among the items accepted: Computers and their components (printers, scanners, keyboards, flat screen monitors, etc.), cell phones, cameras, VCRs, cable TV boxes, fax machines, copiers, stereos, game boys and specialized electronic equipment used in businesses such as hospitals, law enforcement, manufacturing and the oil field.
If you have some old CRT monitors and TVs you want to get rid of, however, there is a $20 to $40 fee, depending on the size of the monitor or TV.
Things you can’t bring in: Projection TV units or consoles, light bulbs, CFLs, mercury thermometers, alkaline batteries (rechargeable are okay), items containing refrigerants (including dehumidifiers), oils, or acids, small kitchen or bathroom appliances, microwave ovens, smoke detectors, or vacuum cleaners.
The drop-off point is 409 1st Street West in Williston. Times are 10:00 am. to 6:00 p.m., April 26th, and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., April 27th.
