Portsmouth sets electronic waste collection event for Sept. 12

Will run from 9 a.m. to noon at PHS

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — Residents can dispose of their electronic waste at a special collection event that will run from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 12, at Portsmouth High School, 120 Education Lane.

To minimize social contact, the collection provider, Indie Cycle, is asking residents to have their electronic waste ready for unloading and that they remain in their vehicles as much as possible. 

This electronics collection is available to any Rhode Island resident and appointments are not required. Items accepted at no charge include televisions, computers, laptops, monitors, routers, computer parts, cell phones and other hand-held devices, mice, keyboards, ink-jet printers, toner cartridges, CD/DVD players, radios, network equipment, wires, stereos, plastic speakers, telephones, cameras, microwaves, small household appliances, and acid lead batteries including auto/marine/laptop with battery back-ups. 

There will be a $10 disposal fee for each laser printer, air conditioner, dehumidifier, and other coolant-containing devices and wood-cased speakers ($5 for small speakers).

Not accepted will be light bulbs, single-use batteries, tapes/disks, glass, cardboard, styrofoam, broken TV tubes, or any other type of non-electronic recyclables or any hazardous materials.

The final e-waste event for this year will be held on Nov. 14.

For information contact Ray Antaya at 401/643- 0359 or rantaya@portsmouthri.com. Complete recycling information is available at www.Portsmoutri.com.
