City of Saginaw MI -
FREE Electronics Recycling Drop-Off Event in Frankenmuth
Have old computers or TVs stored in the basement? Just upgraded your laptop? Have a broken microwave to get rid of? Instead of hoarding those old electronics – get into Recycle-Motion and drop them off for recycling.
Mid Michigan Waste Authority, in partnership with Vintage Tech Recyclers, will host a FREE computer, TV and household electronics recycling drop-off event on Saturday, May 18 in the parking lot of Frankenmuth Mutual Insurance, located at 1 Mutual Drive (off of W. Genesee) in Frankenmuth. The drop-off event is open to any Michigan citizen, schools and businesses from 9am – 1pm.
Computers, computer components, televisions and many household electronics can contain hazardous materials that are also valuable resources. Electronic wastes often contain lead and mercury, that, if improperly handled, can be released into the environment and threaten our health. The materials that make up computer products, such as lead and mercury, along with other precious metals, steel, glass and plastics are valuable resources that can often be recovered and reused or recycled.
“Consumer electronic products account for nearly 40% of the lead found in landfills. Residents are encouraged to take part in this event to keep potentially toxic and valuable electronic components out of the landfill,” said Monica Duebbert, General Manager of Mid Michigan Waste Authority.
Accepted items include desktop computers and laptops, computer related equipment, all televisions, and a wide-variety of household electronics, including microwave ovens, small appliances, holiday light strings, cell phones, PDAs, and gaming systems. A complete list of acceptable electronics is available on the MMWA website at www.recyclemotion.org or by calling 989-781-9555.
Mid Michigan Waste Authority is a government entity providing comprehensive residential solid waste services to more than 72,000 households in 35 communities across the greater Saginaw Valley.
