By now, we all know how and where to recycle plastic, paper, and the like. But what to do with electronics? There aren’t ubiquitous bins in which to deposit e-waste. This Friday, August 8, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Sears will be a repository for all things electric that have reached the end of their usage. Items accepted include computer monitors, television sets, PC systems, printers, laptops, copiers, scanners, fax machines, toner cartridges, UPS & PDAs, power supplies, main frame units, networking equipment, mother board systems, VCR/VCD/DVD players, home entertainment systems, landline and cellular phones, and small portable devices. You can also get rid of household, car, and forklift batteries, as well as unbroken fluorescent light bulbs. Sears is located at 3845 State St. Call 564-5631.
