Electronics recycling event today

Friday, Nov. 19, is 406 Recycling’s monthly electronics recycling event supporting the Good Samaritan. This monthly event is one week early due to the holiday schedule with Thanksgiving.

The collection takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the parking lot of the Good Samaritan Thrift Store, 3067 N. Montana Ave.. Most office, computer, and entertainment-related electronics are accepted for data-secure, responsible recycling. Many items are accepted for free; from personal electronics to office equipment and entertainment systems, including accessories. Charges apply for some older-style monitors and TVs, large televisions, and microwaves. Measures will be in place to ensure contact safe exchange. A voluntary $10 donation to Good Samaritan is encouraged.

406 Recycling’s food scrap and compostable collection program, 406 Compost, will also be on-site distributing collection buckets for new customers. 406 Compost collects food scraps, including meats and grease, as well as compostable dishware. 406 Compost also offers a bucket exchange program for rural customers wanting to keep organics out of their trash and away from critters and yard waste collection by request for customers.
