If you take a few minutes to assess how many old and unused pieces of electronics are using space in your home or garage, you may be surprised by just how quickly the count of old computers, TVs and other items can add up these days.

Rather than dumping your old electronics in the trash, I encourage you to recycle your e-waste at the Goodwill Columbus e-Waste Drop Off Day on Saturday, September 16 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road, in the parking lot that fronts Tremont.

By bringing your used electronics to this event you can help support workforce development training for individuals with disabilities as well as ensure that your electronics are diverted from landfills and recycled, since our curbside recycling program cannot take these devices.

All types of electronics except for tube TVs or tube computer monitors will be happily accepted – for a full list of items, click here. For those looking to recycle tube TVs or computers, SWACO has information on how to safely dispose of those products here.

Volunteers will unload items so donors may stay in their cars and receipts will be provided for tax-deductible donations. Computer hard-drives will be recycled by certified staff to make sure that any personal information is protected. For more information on the event, click here.
