Electronic waste, medicine disposal this Saturday
It's spring cleaning time in Bloomfield Township, with the return of the electronic waste recycling day on Saturday, May 6, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the township campus.
This is the perfect opportunity to clear out the garage, attic and closets of unneeded TVs, outdated computers and any electronic devices that have been cluttering your home. Rule of thumb: if you haven’t touched it in a year, it’s time to go.
In addition to this technological purge, this event includes medication disposal and paper shredding. Time to purge your medicine cabinets of any and all unused or expired medications, as well securely dispense of any unnecessary paperwork that is creating nothing but clutter.
Among the electronic items eligible for recycling are: computers and servers; laptops and tablets; computer monitors (LCD Only); printers and fax machines; toner cartridges; switches and routers; computer cords and cables; docking stations; keyboards and mice; battery back ups; phones and phone systems; and a number of other similar electronic items.
The event is only open to Bloomfield Township residents, and proof of residency is required.
There will be two entrances to the event, south onto Andover Road from Long Lake Road or west onto Andover Road from southbound Telegraph. Have your ID out and ready to show volunteers.
Stay in your vehicle. Volunteers will unload everything from your car.
